From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s vibrant dish combines two of our favorite vegetables only briefly in season together: tender asparagus and summer squash. We’re cooking them in a sauce made with yellow curry paste (a milder variety of the Thai staple), whose heat is balanced by smooth coconut milk and a touch of coconut palm sugar. Our side of jasmine rice is perfect for soaking up the flavorful sauce, while a garnish of peanuts sautéed with ginger and lime zest adds crunch and aromatic zing. (Chefs, your squash may be green or grey zucchini, or yellow summer squash.)

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop the ginger. Roughly chop the peanuts. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter the lime. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel the carrots and thinly slice into rounds. Medium dice the squash. Cut off and discard the tough, woody stem ends of the asparagus; halve on an angle. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

Cook the rice:
2 Cook the rice:

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Set aside in a warm place.

Make the ginger-lime peanuts:
3 Make the ginger-lime peanuts:

While the rice cooks, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add half the ginger. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Reduce the heat to low; add the peanuts. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until toasted. Add the lime zest and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately season with salt. Set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Start the curry:
4 Start the curry:

While the rice continues to cook, in the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the shallot, carrots, squash, and remaining ginger; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add as much of the curry paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant.

Finish the curry:
5 Finish the curry:

To the pan, add the asparagus, coconut milk (shaking the can just before opening), Golden Mountain sauce, and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly reduced in volume and the asparagus has softened. Turn off the heat and stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6 Plate your dish:

Divide the cooked rice and finished curry between 2 dishes. Garnish with the cilantro and ginger-lime peanuts. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
