Curry in a Hurry

Another one of my favourites from Company's Coming by Jean Paré. This recipe is found in the 30-Minute Weekday Meals book. I like to use red or green Thai curry paste and whatever green veggies I have on hand (spinach, kale, chard, bok choy, asparagus, peas, etc). It's great with shrimp or any meat (chicken, pork, etc). Just slice your meat thin and pre-cook it. The leftovers are perfect heated up for lunch the next day. ~ Tracy

A quick, colourful stir-fry with enough sauce to serve over rice. Mild curry adds a pleasing heat. ~ Jean Paré
