Decent easy grub. I forgot to cook any rice so dumped some couscous in 5mins before the end and had a little thai-med fusion dish

My first Thai curry and it was great! Used a whole can of coconut milk, extra stock, generous amount of paste and used broccoli instead of beans. Poured it on top of brown rice in a bowl.

Cooked this when we had a veggie guest, it's really just a veggie version of the classic Thai duck curry with pineapple which we love. We never use reduced fat coconut milk as it's just too full of additives and full fat version also has far more health benefits (paleo diet staple). Also we always use the mythaicurry brand of paste as the taste is so authentic and again no additives. Helps if you defrost the beans a bit first too. As with any curry though it depends very much on how good the paste is.

This is absolutely lovely. Great flavours, extremely filling. My 9 year old really enjoyed it and we didn't miss the meat. If you like it hot you might want to add a bit more chilli but it was perfect for us. Will become a staple.

I quite like this combination of flavours. Used a 250ml carton of coconut cream and didn't measure out the veg, just threw in the quantities I had. Just would be better to make the Thai red curry paste from scratch rather than using it from a jar, but sometimes time just doesn't allow.

I added chicken, worked well.

Like other suggested, a quick and easy healthy midweek meal. Served mine with cous cous... not the typical combination but still tasted great!

Really nice meal, great for leftovers although I have taken to adding a bit more spice and may try adding the chilli as noted by someone else. Yum.

this meal was so nice, the pineapples gave it so much extra flavour. Although not needed I would add some sort of meat next time. 10/10

Loved it, made the mistake of adding a full tin of coconut milk, but extra sauce made a lovely soup for my lunch the next day. Very tasty and quick midweek meal

Have made this so many times now and just beautiful. So quick and easy and you can alter the amounts to suit your taste. Fab. I always use diced turkey and comes out so tender. A firm favourite on a friday night and healthy too.

It needed waaaaay more curry paste, and even then I don't know if it would be worth repeating. I love butternut squash and pineapple, but it wasn't flavorsome at all
