The Ginger People’s Thai Green Curry is a versatile sauce that can be used to marinade fish and vegetables or as a simmer sauce for a healthy stir-fry recipe or Thai dishes.
When you are trying to eat clean with a diet that centers on lean proteins and vegetables, sanity is all in the sauce!
A fan of Thai cooking and a less extreme version of The Rice Diet, I was curious to see how The Ginger People’s Thai Green Curry would compare to chicken or tofu green curry dish at my favorite Thai restaurant.
I purchased the Thai Green Curry simmer sauce from Whole Foods Market. It can be found in the section with other stir-fry sauces, marinades, Thai and Indian sauces. It comes in a 12.7 fluid ounce or 375.5 mL glass bottle.
I don’t suggest tasting the Thai Green Curry cooking sauce before adding the meat and other ingredients. Much of the sublime flavor comes from the simmering of the meats and vegetables.
I was pleased with the mild taste, but decided to spice up my green curry stir-fry by adding more green chilies and red pepper flakes. Just like you can always cut off more hair but you can’t put it back, you can always add more spice but it’s hard to take spice out!
The ingredients include the delicate lemon grass flavor as well as lemon juice and cilantro. For a more authentic Thai green curry flavor and texture, you may want to add in a can of coconut milk.
Here are a few things I learned about the Ginger People Thai Green Curry from my review:

I suggest using the sauce to make your own Thai Green Curry recipe or stir fry recipe. The best Thai Green Curry recipe usually contains green beans, baby corn, basil leaves, and onions. You can also add zucchini, broccoli or peppers depending on your taste. Some Thai Green Curry recipes call for tofu while others use chicken, shrimp or beef. Use your wok to whip up Green Curry pr another stir fry recipe using the The Ginger People Thai Green Curry cooking sauce.
I added the cooking sauce when the vegetables and chicken was about 5 minutes away from being ready. For a boost of nutrition, add in a few squirts of Bragg liquid aminios product. And, season with additional spice to taste.
For taste and nutrition, I give the Ginger People Thai Green Curry 4.7 out of 5 stars.
