I found this recipe in my Paleo Slow Cooking cookbook. I think it’s safe to say that I am slightly obsessed with red curry. I could put it on anything, well, almost anything. I’ve put it on pad thai, fried rice, and roasted veggies. It exotic and delicious and, to my surprise, easy to make at home. All you need is red curry paste and …
