    Cook Rice In a sauce pan, cook the rice according to the package directions. Cover and set aside.

    *Brown Rice: Look for pre-cooked brown rice in the frozen section of the grocery store.

    Simmer Sauce In another sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger. Cook for 30 seconds, constantly stirring. Add the red curry paste, soy sauce, peanut butter, vegetable broth, coconut milk, and honey. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let simmer for at least 10 minutes.

    *Ginger: Instead of chopping fresh ginger, try ginger powder or a refrigerated ginger paste.
    *Garlic: Purchase jars of minced garlic instead of chopping your own.
