Serves 4 (serving size: 3/4 cup noodles and 1 1/2 cups curry)

Lacinato kale ups the green in this green curry dish, providing a delightful textural contrast to the tender rice noodles.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green onions, garlic, and ginger; sauté 1 minute. Stir in curry paste; sauté 30 seconds. Add carrots, chicken stock, and coconut milk, stirring well to combine; bring to a simmer, and cook 5 minutes.

Step 3

Fold in kale; sprinkle with salt. Cook 3 minutes or until kale is wilted and tender. Add shrimp; cook 3 minutes or until shrimp are done. Remove from heat; top with cilantro, lime rind, and juice. Serve over rice noodles.

I made this dish as the recipe calls for and found it pretty underwhelming. I would double up on the spices because I couldn't even taste the curry or really any flavors.

Pretty straight forward curry recipe; I did use several tablespoons of the green curry paste I had on hand, as it was nearing the end of the jar and needed to be used up, and I knew it was a mild tasting paste. I added a serrano chili for heat and put siracha at the table for my chili head husband. Came together quickly and makes a lot!

This was good. I subbed red curry. I thought it needed more salt. I also felt there was too much sauce. Next time I'd cut the sauce in half.

My husband and I were fans of this dish! I made it exactly as written except that I omitted the cilantro because I did not have any on hand. Yummy dinner!

The green curry paste we have is super hot so I halved the amount listed, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe.  Hubby was dubious about the kale but in the end he said it was good and we should have this again.  Win/win!
