I love to cook and I watch a few cooking shows where I am really intrigued by the Asian dishes. I love Asian food (Japanese, and Thai mostly but also some Filipino and Chinese) and was really bummed when I developed a severe soy allergy in my mid-20's. Wooo bummer! No more miso dressing for me. That was really a sad time.
Through the years I've developed my own set of dishes that mimic the Asian tastes I love so much but I've spent so much time trying to emulate that soy-sauce taste I've completely missed out on some wonderful Asian dishes that don't even contain any soy ingredients to begin with.
One day while browsing through my regular grocery store I landed upon son WorldFoods Thai Yellow Curry Cooking Sauce. I had never heard of it but had just seen a show with some very yummy yellow curry. I picked up the bottle and made my own version of a very tasty dish and one sure to remain in my repertoire.
That jar is long since gone but…
WORLDFOODS recently asked me to try some more of their sauces and pastes and report back what I thought. I was more than happy to. I had already tried the YThai Yellow Curry Cooking Sauce.
Now I was already a happy customer of WORLDFOODS before they asked me to taste test some of their sauces and here's why…
- As I mentioned earlier I have a soy allergy and that means some added flavors and ingredients along with soy are off the table for me. WORLDFOODS only uses authentic herbs and spices along with 100-percent natural, fresh ingredients to create each of its unique flavors. The ingredients list on the Yellow Curry was so nice and small and completely readable. A+ for me!
- Currently the brand offers 65 different sauces, dips, and marinades all inspired by the tastes of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, China, and India. There are so many tastes to try!
- These sauces are perfect for individuals with dietary constraints (such as me). Each of their products are allergen and gluten free!
- Free of added oil, trans fat, artificial ingredients, preservatives, or food flavor enhancers.
- The retail price for WORLDFOODS sauces varies based on retailer. Find a store near you
So what did I make? Well I used some Thai Red Curry Paste and made this delicious curry that was not only easy to make (where have I been) it was totally delicious and satisfying.
Thai Chicken Curry
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
• 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
• 1 tablespoon WORLDFOODS Thai red curry paste
• 1 cup sliced halved zucchini
• 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
• 1/2 cup sliced carrots
• 1 onion, quartered then halved
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1 (14 ounce) can light coconut milk
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
First I used the olive oil and browned the chicken. Then I added the cut up veggies and cooked for a few minutes. Then I stirred the cornstarch into the coconut milk and added the mixture to the pan. Brought to a quick boil and turned down to simmer until cooked and heated through. I salted to taste and stirred in the cilantro at the end.
I seriously plan on stocking my pantry with WORLDFOODS sauces. There are so many dishes you can create. The sauces run from pastes, to dipping sauces. You can find a ton of recipes on the WORLDFOODS website.
