Quick Meal: Green Curry Vegetables over Rice

Sorry this is out of focus, and in general just not the best photo.

This is a very quick and easy meal, and because it is vegan it makes a great meal for those following a strict Lenten fast.  If you have members in your family who are still eating meat, you could easily throw in some cooked and shredded chicken.

For the Green Curry sauce (right off the Green Curry Paste jar):

1 14 oz can of Coconut Milk (use lite to cut the fat)
1-2 T of Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste
1 T - or so, fish Sauce (I didn't have any so I used Worcestershire)
1 1/2 T - or so, brown sugar

Mix this all in a large saute pan, until just simmering.  Then toss in about 7 c of frozen "Stir Fry" veggies (or any kind you like).  Keep simmering until the veggies are defrosted and heated through.  *if adding cooked chicken, add it at the same time...or you can let each person add theirs at the table (pre-warmed in the microwave, if necessary).  This served 6 of us, with only a little leftover.

Serve over jasmine rice for the most authentic recipe, or brown rice for more fiber.
