Thai Green Curry



You asked for it...so here is the delicious curry that has been a house favourite at Cabarita Yoga for almost 2 decades!

If you know me, you know I love to forage & to have as many ingredients as possible from local sources so...

the lemongrass originally came from a client's garden....I have cultivated it & I know many of you have enjoyed it in our fabulous lemongrass tea that is served to calm & rehydrate us in the summer months. The Kefir lime leaves are either raided from my wonderful partner's little tree or Steve (of the Pencil Tree Charity) fabulous tree...thanks gentlemen!
