I teased this recipe quite a few weeks ago on my Instagram but I’ve been waiting to post it because I wanted to film the youtube video for it as well. IT’S SO GOOD and I wanted to share it across every single platform that I could :D

Since my Loaded Veggie Tikka Masala recipe is consistently one of the most popular recipes on my blog, I figured that it was time I made a couple more curry recipes for you to try.

I LOVE how easy curries are to throw together and how simple it is to sub in whatever vegetables you have on hand so that you’re not going out to buy a bunch of extra stuff.

So if you don’t have any of these veggies, feel free to sub in more of something else or add in whatever sounds good to you. Just be mindful of cook times as all veggies need to simmer for different times to be properly done.

How to make this easy vegan curry:

First let’s look at the star ingredients in this coconut curry:

  • sweet potato
  • cauliflower
  • carrot
  • lite coconut milk
  • green peas
  • chickpeas
  • almond butter

vegan curry recipe

To make this easy vegan dinner we’ll start by sautéing our garlic for a couple of minutes before adding in the sweet potato, cauliflower, and carrots since they take the longest to cook. Then the spices are mixed in as well as the coconut milk, broth, soy sauce, almond butter and salt and pepper. Next the peppers go in and it all simmers for about 10 minutes to cook down the veggies.

Finally the chickpeas and peas are stirred in and cooked for a few more minutes to heat through.


LOVE a good one pot meal ???
