Green Curry Paste
We love this recipe as a base for soups, stews, and curries, but it also makes a great marinade for grilled meats and veggies.
4 cloves of garlic
½ stalk of lemongrass, roughly chopped
½ jalapeno (optional)
½ bunch of cilantro (stems included)
Zest of 1 lime
1 2-in. piece of ginger, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons fish sauce
3 shallots, roughly chopped
Combine all the curry ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
