    Love coconut and curry? This is divine! Again...why add EVOO when you can simmer onions in a bit of coconut milk? :)

    Instead of EVOO use coconut oil -- it's really good for you. - 8/6/10

  • So easy and so yummy! I added more garlic, heat, scallions, basil and a bullion cube, we really enjoyed it - 1/23/13

  • Very creamy and tasty (I had to add a lot of water)! I used coconut oil and garnished with coconut shreds. - 8/3/11

  • I like it! I didn't have any fresh ginger, so I added about 2 tsp of ground ginger instead. Also, the only red peppers I had on hand were a jar of fire-roasted red peppers, which seem to be going nicely. I was also out of curry paste, so added curry powder (just had to guess the amt). Still good!! - 10/1/09
