Here I rustle up one of Peter’s much loved dishes of stir-fried green curry prawns and vegetables on rice noodles.
Unlike regular Thai curries, this stir fried version is lighter, with less sauce, making it a great option for lunchtime too if you fancy it.
I also prefer to use rice noodles, which are a healthier option than wheat/egg noodles. There are only 96 calories per 1/2 cup and contain very little fat too.

Ingredients (serves 2)
- 150g rice noodles, uncooked
- 1tsp of sesame oil
- 2 large tablespoons of Thai Green Curry Paste

Mix the Thai green curry paste and water together in a bowl. Set aside for later.
Cook your rice noodles according to the package directions, when tender, drain and toss with the sesame oil.
Heat the coconut oil in a large wok, add the garlic and heat for around 30 seconds.
Add your vegetables, prawns and the curry paste mixture and cook for around 3 – 4 minutes until vegetables are crisp and prawns are cooked through and pink but also still tender.
