  5. Cooking Tip: Thai green curry paste can be found in jars or packets with the Asian foods at most grocery stores. It is quite spicy so if you're not sure about the heat, start with the lowest amount suggested.

  6. For the Adventurous: Use Thai fish sauce instead of soy sauce, increase curry paste to 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) and add 2 cups (500 mL) shredded napa cabbage with peppers.

  7. Healthy Eating Tip: 'Tis the cold season and Canadians should be topping up on vitamin C and zinc. This recipe is an excellent source of both.
