- 2 full tbsp thai green curry paste
- 1 can (400ml) of coconut milk (organic preferably)

Heat the coconut oil in a large deep-frying pan or wok over a medium heat and fry the onion for 5 minutes until starting to soften. Stir in the curry paste, chilli and ginger, then stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the green vegetables for another 3-4 minutes.
