This vegetable curry is perfect for those evenings you want something nourishing and satisfying, yet you don’t feel like spending forever in the kitchen.
Use Whatever Veggies You Have
What I love about this easy vegetable curry recipe, is that you can use any vegetables you have on hand. Of course you can start with the ones I provide you in the recipe, but don’t feel compelled to stick to it. If you want a more fall-inspired dish, consider this pumpkin version.
Keep These Kitchen Staples on Hand
I almost always have culinary coconut milk and red curry paste on hand, and of course a variety of fresh vegetables, too, so I can whip this together quickly when I don’t know what else to make, or frankly, don’t feel like actually cooking.
I typically order the So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk and the Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste at vitacost.com (which is cheaper than in stores).
