There’s a great recipe for homemade basic red curry sauce on the site, but if you want to save some time you could use red curry paste and 2 cups of coconut milk as a substitute.

Start with just a tablespoon of red curry paste, then taste it towards the end of the cook time. You can always add more by mixing another tablespoon in a small cup filled with some of the hot broth from the slow cooker, then mixing it all into the curry. You can also make your own red curry paste and store it in the freezer for just these kind of emergencies.

    • Hi Shannon,

      I didn’t see the coconut in the list of ingredients either – then I clicked the link within the recipe “Basic Red Curry” on the list of main ingredients – the coconut milk is in that portion of the recipe 🙂

  1. Is it really 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth powder? That seems like a lot of broth/sodium even for the low sodium version.

    • I assume you mean 2 cups of liquid chicken broth… BTW – have loved all of your recipes I have made so far. Trying this one tomorrow. Thanks for your help!

  2. I made this for dinner last night and it was awesome! I am not a breakfast food person…so I may just need to eat the leftovers for breakfast! YUM.
