Thai curry pastes are made from aromatic herbs, spices, and vegetables and incorporated into dishes as a complex and spicy flavoring. Yellow curry paste is traditionally the mildest, red curry can vary from mild to quite spicy, while green curry paste is typically one of the spiciest styles of Thai curry, but also one of the sweetest. Edamame is the Japanese term for soybeans, a nutritious legume that is low in carbohydrates and high in protein and used to make soy milk, tofu, tempeh, soy sauce, miso, and soybean oil, or sprouted for bean sprouts. Edamame are readily available in the pod or shelled in your grocer's freezer. Serve each portion of this beef and vegetable curry with 1/3 cup cooked brown basmati rice if it suits your plan.
