For the stir fry

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs, trimmed and sliced into bite sized pieces

For the sauce

  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste*
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, finely minced
  • 1 15 oz can coconut milk (I recommend using full fat)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 5 whole basil leaves


For the stir fry

  1. Have all your chicken and veggies sliced and prepped. Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium high heat with some avocado oil (coconut works too).
  2. Add your chicken to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Don’t toss or stir the chicken often or else it wont brown. When the chicken has browned and is cooked through, remove to a plate.
  3. Next, add your bell peppers and green beans. Season with salt and pepper and cook until they have begun to get soft, between 5-10 minutes.
  4. To the pan with your bell peppers and green beans, add the rest of your veggies (garlic, ginger, onion, and snow peas). Cook until the onions have softened and then add the chicken back in with everything else. Toss to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.

For the sauce

  1. In a saute pan over medium heat, add some avocado (or coconut) oil. When hot, add your curry paste, garlic, and ginger. Stir this and let it cook for a minute or so. To this, add your coconut milk and almond butter – whisk to combine. Add your whole basil leaves and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring often

To assemble

  1. Start with a base of your stir fry and top with lots and lots of sauce! Garnish with chopped basil and cilantro. This is super yummy over cauliflower rice or regular rice.
