  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 teaspoon green curry paste
  • 1 pound chicken breast or tenders, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 small head broccoli, chopped (florets only)
  • 1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 small can sliced bamboo shoots
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro (optional, for garnish)
