Thai Green Curry with Veggies and Roasted Sweet Potatoes
This Healthy Green Curry Recipe goes out to my sister Becky! Me and Becky LOVE eating Thai food together! She LOVES Green Curry! Thai curry dishes may not be the healthiest for you though. I wanted to come up with a Healthy Green Curry Recipe, that is just as delish but is also healthy. This Healthy Green Curry Recipe uses reduced coconut milk rather than the full fat version, and rather than chicken or other type of meat, loads this up with sweet potatoes and veggies. This Healthy Green Curry Recipe is delicious! Becky – I hope you LOVE this as much as I do!
