Vegan Spring Roll Green Curry
Thai Coconut Green Curry with Spring Rolls
Have you ever had spring rolls combine with green curry coupled together for a unique mouth experience? The combination of crispy, juicy spring rolls with spicy and sweet green curry is unique and will knock you off your feet!
This comparatively mild and herbaceous curry is a Thai restaurant menu staple for a reason – well rounded flavours – spiciness soothed by thick creamy cooling coconut and set against the freshness of lemongrass and basil leaves. Flavors that will surely get you hooked on the first bite!
The Thai term for green curry known as “gaeng keow wan” (แกงเขียวหวาน) is translated to English literally as “sweet green curry”. So this is typically known throughout Thailand as a sweeter tasting curry, rather than a spicy curry. Like with many Thai recipes, especially curries, the paste is the most important flavoring of the entire dish. Over the years, I have tried several green curry paste brands and I finally have a favorite – Chef’s Choice! It is not overly spicy, very mild and fresh tasting. Some recipes add extra sugar to make green curry sweeter. But other traditional Thai green curry recipes just rely on the coconut milk to provide the sweetness – I prefer the latter without adding extra sugar. I have used Chef’s Choice coconut milk which is thick and naturally sweet, yuuum!!
Serve this vegan spring roll green curry over brown rice for a perfect meal. I personally love to combine it with cauliflower rice which is a great low carb option.

Spring Roll Green Curry
For the mini spring roll
- 50 g red cabbage minced
- 150 g firm tofu
- 2 TBSP vegetable oil for filling
- 2 TBSP light soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 8 sheets vegan spring roll pastry 125x125
- 3-4 TBSP vegetable for frying
For the curry

- 100 g broccoli cut in small florets
- 2 TBSP chef's choice green curry paste
- 250 g chef's choice coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
For the mini spring rolls
- Slice the tofu into approximately one-inch cubes. Then using either your hands or a fork, crumble it slightly into minced consistency. Heat oil in a skillet or wok over high heat. Add the tofu and cook for about 5min. Season with soy sauce and black pepper. Add the cabbage and cook for another 5min. Set aside and let cook for a little bit.
- Carefully peel off one spring roll wrapper. Place the wrapper in a diamond position and add about 1 tablespoon of filling on the bottom. Roll up halfway, fold sides in, then finish rolling. Dab a little water along the edges and seal the roll. Repeat. You should get total 8 mini spring rolls.
- Heat oil in a pan and carefully place spring rolls in the oil and cook, turning occasionally, until deep golden - around 1-2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
For the curry
- First heat up curry paste in a pan for about 30sec. Add the coconut milk and cook for another 30sec while stirring.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 10min or until vegetables are wilted.
- Serve the curry in a bowl adding the spring rolls. Decorate with basil leave.

How to? 🤔 The procedure of sprouting or germinating grains and legumes is by firstly soaking them in enough filtered water between 10-24hours. After that it needs to be rinsed and then kept in environments with controlled amounts of warmth and moisture to be nurtured just right so the germination can take place and new life can begin to evolve.

Vegetarian Festival Food Tour Guidance! The right experience!
For those of you who feel lost in this mass of vegan food offer out there let me guide you through this wonderful festival and take a closer look. It will be a culinary experience where I am going to explain what vegan food is all about while trying out different dishes and snacks in the markets. We will eat, drink and I will help you get more education in terms of plant-based food and you will understand why it is so essential to be conscious of what you are fueling your body with. Lets have a good time and enjoy colorful and scrumptious food!
For upcoming dates please check the event Calender on the right hand side.

Beetroot Burger Pattie
If you are looking for a juicy burger pattie, you are on the right page with the right recipe! This Beetroot Burger Pattie is juicy, packed with protein, fiber, and so satisfying. Serve it as it is, as a burger or over salad for a low-carb lunch or dinner. You can also make them into vegan beet balls.
Burgers are probably one of the most popular foods there is. Unfortunately, it is not the best for your health. This burger pattie is a healthy alternative and provides you with beautiful nutrients and vitamins. A meat-based burger comes with cholesterol and saturated fats, which you don’t want in your body.
The color gives out the illusion that you are eating meat, but it is, of course, entirely plant-based. Did you know meat only tastes good because of three main components, smoke, fat, and spices? Without these three components, meat wouldn’t taste delicious. That means we can take these three components and make Patties, Stroganoff, Kofta, and other meat alternatives altogether plant-based.
It is all about trying out something new. Transitioning to a more conscious diet can be challenging, but I promise you all the effort and dedication will be worth it. Your body and mind will reward you in the most beautiful and surprising way.
If you are just at the beginning of your plant-based journey my video about Mindset for Conscious Eating might be helpful.
I hope this recipe serves you well.
Sending love, as always. xx

These baked Cauliflower Buffalo Wings are finger-licking good. Cauliflower is very versatile and an extremely nutritious vegetable. Not only can you make these amazing Cauliflower Buffalo Wings but you can also roast it to a char or steam and puree it and it transforms into a mashed potato-like dish with fewer calories. These Cauliflower Buffalo Wings are incredible and very addictive even to nonvegans and especially for kids!
These 6-ingredient buffalo wings are the perfect vegan, gluten-free healthy snack for a movie, game day, summer barbecue parties, potlucks, or whenever you find yourself craving serious comfort food that won’t leave you feeling weighed down.
