I made for tea today and my wife says it is delicious, so I decided to share it:

Easy Vegan Thai Curry

================

400ml tin of Coconut milk

500g Passata or a tin of chopped tomatoes

500ml Stock

2 good squirts Lime Juice

1 tbsp Miso paste

2 tbsp Garlic & Ginger paste

2 tbsp Thai Curry Paste (Asda's is vegan)

1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric

1 Onion chopped

1 Bell Pepper chopped

300g green veg, I used Covolo Nero Kale chopped

4 nests Noodles

360g Beansprouts

* Quantities given are guidelines only.

To a large pan add the Coconut milk, Passata, Stock, Miso, Ginger & Garlic paste, Lime Juice and Ground Turmeric.

Heat and stir until well mixed

Add the onion, pepper and kale.

Cook until the kale has softened.

Add the noodles and cook until they are soft.

Stir in the Beansprouts and cook for a few minutes, until warmed through.

Serve and enjoy!

I know there are variables like the type of green veg, the colour of the pepper and the curry paste but just use what you have in stock.

"passata or tinned tomateos for blood pressure"? Tomatoes are good for blood pressure aren't they? See No. 3 here: huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/...

I didn't know about the sodium. We use Passata from a carton is that OK?

oh please dont be upset with me jimmy i just watch my salt intake and it does say not to use tinned tomatoes unless they are low sodium. i suppose it will be low sodium on the passata as well. im looking after my blood pressure. even when i eat smoked haddock it warns not to have it to often because of the salt. not everyone has hight blood pressure so they dont have to worry. sorry i spoke.

Aha! We don't add salt to anything we cook except that we use Very Low Salt stock cubes. Instead of salt we use Miso paste, which "does something" to neutralise the salt, or a spice mix that I got from the book "How Not To Die". My BP has gone down to "ideal" levels, so I don't watch the sodium so much now.

Ive never seen salt in tinned tomatoes or passata ?

"People consuming food packaged in containers lined with BPA daily would take in considerably less BPA than the TDI. This means that there is no appreciable risk to health."

hmm -I think I would take that recommendation with a pinch of salt ( sorry !)

TDI s or any other recommended daily amount kind of thing are often a way of dismissing a problem . I would like to know just HOW they determine what level of BPA is a risk to health

That's why I buy Passata in cartons.
