Vegetable Curry (20-Minute Meal)


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 (which is cheaper than in stores).
