What’s for Dinner? Verve Culture Thai for Two Cooking Kits

One thing we are enjoying about the months-long lockdown is we can experiment in the kitchen. Whether it’s trying a new recipe or a new dish in general. We were not-so-recently introduced to Verve Culture, we previously highlighted their Tortilla Cast Iron Press Kit, and we’re excited to share another of their wonderful products, the Verve Culture Thai for Two Cooking Kits. Prepare easy-to-make meals with these authentic ingredients from Thailand; just add your own protein and vegetables.

There are so many things to love about the Verve Culture Thai for Two Cooking Kits. We love the convenience, the simplicity of preparing, the break from ordering in, the change of basic cuisine, and of course the fantastic taste. The Thai for Two Cooking Kits are available in five varieties – Pad Thai, Organic Green Curry Kit, Organic Tom Kha Soup, Organic Panang Curry Kit, and Organic Red Curry Kit. Naturally, the taste is at the very top but a very close second is how quickly a meal can be prepared. You see, these organic Thai for Two cooking kits take only 7 steps and your meal can be fully prepared in 7 minutes. The numbers increase by one for the Pad Thai making it 8 steps and 8 minutes; they are decreased by 2 for the Tom Kha Soup, making it 5 steps and 5 minutes.

If you are fans of the big, fragrant, and creamy flavors of Thai food, the Verve Culture Thai for Two cooking kits will not disappoint. We had the pleasure of trying out the Organic Red Curry Kit and Organic Green Curry Kit, both over rice. For the Organic Red Curry Kit, we added beef as our protein and followed the 7 easy steps and our delicious dinner for two was complete. Each kit comes housed in a black and gold pouch with each ingredient individually packaged and sealed.

The Organic Red Curry cooking kit included: Organic dried herbs, Organic red curry seasoning, Organic red curry paste, and Organic coconut milk. For those who prefer a tamer spice level, you can use 1/2 – 3/4 of the curry paste; for the rest of us, use the entire packet or add some of your own red curry. The above is a deep plate (more of a soup or stew plate), so all our red curry is at the bottom. Nevertheless, we were more than happy with the result and this did not last very long. For the Organic Green Curry kit, we chose salmon as our protein and choose a different mix of vegetables.

Lunch is Served | Thai Kitchen Green Curry Kit

Sometimes I find myself snacking as I’m updating my content or eating hors d’oeuvres at an event and that is usually my lunch or dinner. But every so often I love to take the time out to prepare a home-cooked meal – of course with my schedule, I have to go with meal options that are quick and easy to make. And what’s easier than creating a meal where you only have to purchase two items? Item 1 – shrimp (you can substitute chicken and/or vegetables), item 2 – the Thai Kitchen Green Curry Kit (there’s also a Red Curry Kit). I am a huge fan of curry dishes…huge!! So you know this meal was going to be enjoyed.

The Green Curry Kit includes jasmine rice, coconut milk and curry sauce made from authentic ingredients such as garlic, lemongrass, galangal (Thai ginger) and shallots. Green curry is a classic Thai dish and one of my favorite types of curry (yes there are several types). Creating my lunch was so easy, I was hardly in the room as it was cooking. As per the instructions, I first prepared the Jasmine rice whose aroma and naturally delicious flavor had me continuously snacking

The next step was sauce preparation – first bringing the coconut milk to a simmer then adding the green curry sauce which also makes a great stir-fry seasoning or base for soup. Eight minutes later, my kitchen smelled like an exotic Thai locale. The final step was to add my shrimp and wait for it to be enveloped into the flavor of the Thai Green Curry sauce.

 

Now comes the really fun part – enjoying the delicious creation. While you can just top the Jasmine rice with the shrimp and rice, I prefer to enjoy the delicious curry sauce with every bite so I decided to mix the Jasmine rice into the sauce. The next time I create this meal, and believe me I plan on it, I will add some vegetables but for this meal – it was absolutely perfect. Every bite delicious!
