Thai-style Green Curry (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 02/12/2014 - This green curry is one of my favorite Thai-style meals to cook at home. It is easy to make, and delicious. It can be served over rice or gluten-free noodles, and you can include whatever vegetables you like or have on hand. You can also add any kind of meat or tofu you desire, as you are cooking the vegetables.

  • 2 carrot, sliced in bite-sized pieces

Add paste to wok and stir briefly.

Add green beans, carrots, onion, bell pepper, and stir-fry, tossing to ensure paste doesn't burn, for 1-2 minutes until lightly seared.

Add coconut cream, chicken stock, lime leaves and corn and bring to the boil.

Return eggplant to pan, then reduce heat to low and simmer for a further 5 minutes until chicken is cooked and corn is just tender.

Stir in fish sauce, lime juice and sugar and heat through for 1 minute.

Garnish with cilantro as desired, and serve over rice or rice noodles.

The directions say, “simmer for a further 5 minutes until chicken is cooked,” but there is no chicken listed in the ingredients list.

There is also no mention of when to add the peas, if they should be thawed first, if the baby corn is the canned or frozen variety (and if it should be thawed first if frozen). Also, the ingredients list is all a-jumble, and do not follow the order of the steps in the recipe, making for confusing cooking. A potentially good recipe, terribly written.

Thanks for chiming in, JM. Sorry about the chicken. I was adapting the recipe from my chicken veggie curry recipe and simply missed that part. My bad. As for the peas and corn, it doesn't matter if they are fresh, frozen or canned. They will cook sufficiently in the pot.

Sounds amazing but can you add what you had in mind for this: 4 kaffir lime leaves (see note). I seldom see them, I've heard there is also a paste which I would like to do if you know of one that is celiac friendly.

Me too. I had numerous chest x rays as I couldnt shake colds off and they always progressed on to my chest. Barely happens since my diet change

You make a good point i'll be sure to watch out. My mom is coming with me shes not gluten free I'll have her try the stuff that may be contaminated and tell me how it is :b hahah

I have been thinking that I need to change my diet and this article has only confirmed it. I eat quite a lot of gluten-free 'treats' at the moment, cakes, chocolate etc. I rationalise by the fact I dont drink or smoke and have a restricted choice so I 'deserve' a break, but I guess my choices are leading in a bad direction. Maybe I'll have a go at making some better choices...

Love reading this story as it is rare (I think) to find someone else with the swallowing issues! Hate that this is your experience however! My daughter also has the swallowing issues and it got so severe (we had no idea about Celiac) that she had to do intensive therapy to learn how to swallow again. It got better but never resolved. Once she went gluten-free it got way better though a recent exposure to oats caused it to flare up again. Do you mind me asking - Has your swallowing issues 100% resolved being gluten-free? Does it ever actually go away and stay away or will it always pop up from time to time?

I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day. The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal. Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer. I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell. Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.
