Thai Green Curry Paste Recipe with Lemongrass, Lime and Coriander Essential Oil
This Thai Green Curry paste recipe was created by Chef Kate, celebrity to the stars and features Young Living lemongrass essential oil, lime essential oil, lemon essential oil and coriander essential oil.
Note from Chef Kate: You can make this flavourful curry paste as mild or hot as your taste buds can handle! The ingredient list is a bit long, but it only takes a few minutes to put it all together and the fresh flavour it adds is really worth it. I usually double or triple the recipe and freeze some for later use.
To make a Thai Red Curry Paste use hot red chillies in place of green ones and add tablespoons of tomato paste.
TIP - This recipes calls for approx. 1 cup of loosely packed herbs. Chef Kate likes to use mostly coriander, and mint with a little parsley and basil if you have them on hand.

NOTE Use the tender part at the bottom of the lemongrass stalk and peel off the tougher outer stalk. Jalapeño peppers are perfect for this recipe, but you can use other hot green chillies too.
1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined for approx. 2–3 minutes, stopping once to scrape down the sides and continue blending.
2. You can also use a high speed blender, but you will have to scrape down the sides and blend a few times to get it to combine well. You may need to add a little more melted coconut oil or a little water. You can use the paste immediately, keep refrigerated for up to 4 days, or freeze for 1 month.
