My favorite comfort food has to be coconut-milk based currys.  DH and I were trying to remember how I developed a taste for such curry, but who knows.  Give me anything with coconut milk and Thai red curry paste and I am a happy girl.

I have had various versions of seafood + coconut curry sauce + green veggies at many restaurants (and, loved it everytime) so I had to try this version from Cooking Light.  Had to try it so much that I made it for a Sunday night supper and forced DH to eat it.

That is a tasty coconut curry broth!
