Paleo Thai Curry

Pressure Cooker Paleo Thai Red Curry Recipe

The ultimate quick Paleo-friendly Thai inspired curry that is dairy, gluten and refined sugar free. Cooked in a Ninja Kitchen Pressure Cooker.

Do Thai curry's contain heaps of sugar and additives? 

Generally a Thai curry is relatively low in total sugars compared to a Tomato bolognese based sauce for example, as a red Thai curry sauce is normally made up of herbs, spices and coconut milk. However, if opting for a pre-jarred version, be careful of added refined sugars, chemical preservatives and seed/vegetable oils. 

What are coconut aminos that are used in this recipe?

Coconut aminos are a great replacement for Soy Sauce as it is gluten free and Paleo-friendly. It comes from fermenting the sap of the coconut palm.

If you are diabetic or trying to limit total sugar intake, use sparingly or remove altogether as the natural sugar content is high.
