Looking for a cozy dinner to warm you up during these cold winter months? This simple coconut curry is hearty, healthy, and comes together in just 20 minutes!
I live in upstate NY where the winters are very snowy and cold, so finding easy-to-make, warm, comforting dinners is a must. An obvious choice would be soups, but I’m not the biggest fan of soups. However I am a huge fan of curries. Curry #1!!!
How to make vegan coconut curry
Recently coconut milk has been my favorite food group, and this simple coconut curry has been my favorite food. In a large pot, we start by sautéing onion and garlic. Then we gently cook carrots, bell peppers, and broccoli. Finally we add in coconut milk, vegetable broth, and spices. Bring to a simmer, and 10 minutes later you’ve got yourself a simple, perfect coconut curry.
Feel free to sub in whatever vegetables you like! Snow peas, tomatoes, and cauliflower would be delicious. I love serving this curry with basmati rice, cilantro, and a generous squeeze of lemon juice.
A few notes
- This curry will keep in the fridge for about 5 days, and is great for meal prep. If you prep rice to serve with it, I suggest keeping the rice and curry in separate containers until the day you plan to eat it so the rice doesn’t get too soggy.
- You can sub in light coconut milk if you do not want to use full-fat coconut milk, but note that this will make the curry a lot thinner and less rich.
