Thai Curry

Thai Chick-un Curry

Can’t get enough Thai in my life so was excited to try this dish with new, gluten-free, vegan Veggie cutlets. I know not everyone is keen on ‘fake’ meat, but these were additive-free, low fat, rich in fiber and iron, plus had great texture and really absorbed the coconut curry well. It was a good addition and will make friends happy who expect a heartier Thai dish. If you can’t find vegan fish sauce in your local market or online, feel free to use soy sauce or Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce.

Ingredients $16.00 (4 Servings)

  • Onion (red, or white) 1 unit
  • Elianni Veggie Cutlets 12 units
  • Coconut Milk unsweetened 14 ozs
  • Thai curry paste (red, or green) 1 tbsp
  • Red Bell Pepper cut into strips 1 unit
  • Peas 14 ozs
  • Brown sugar 1 tbsp
  • Fish sauce nam pla 1 tbsp
  • Basil thinly sliced 1/3 cup
  • Lime juice 1-2 tbsp
  • Sesame seeds or crushed roasted peanuts 2 tbsps
  • Vegetable stock 4 cups


  1. Boil vegetable stock, remove from heat and add Elianni Veggie cutlets to hydrate for 5 minutes, then drain.
  2. Bring 1/4 cup coconut milk and curry paste to boil in large skillet over medium-high heat, whisking constantly.
  3. Add bell pepper and onion; sauté 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in chicken, remaining coconut milk, peas, sugar and fish sauce.
  5. Cook until veggie cutlets (chick’un) are cooked through, stirring often, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in remaining 3 ingredients and simmer 1 minute. Season with salt, sesame seeds (or crushed roasted peanuts) and fresh basil.

NOTE: Feel free to experiment with various vegetables such as broccoli, baby corn, bamboo shoots, etc.
