This vegan one-pan red curry is the perfect simple but satisfying dinner! Healthy, comforting, and so easy to make.
I feel like curry is the epitome of the perfect satisfying, soul-warming, comfy, cozy dinner. When it comes to dinner, I can get lazy after baking all day. So when I saw this simple recipe, I was immediately intrigued. Not only did it require only one pan and minimal ingredients, I was extra excited because it’s from my friend Brandi’s amazing new cookbook!
Brandi blogs over at The Vegan 8, and her recipes always look absolutely mouthwatering, but they’re also extremely manageable. She keeps the ingredients recognizable, healthy and wholesome, and as her blog’s name makes clear, the recipes only use 8 ingredients or less! I’m so excited to now have a tangible book full of her beautiful recipes! I totally gravitate toward simple recipes, for dinnertime especially. I knew that Brandi’s curry would have tons of flavor but still doable for a weeknight.
This curry is a simple mix of flavorful ingredients. Plenty of vegetables, chickpeas, and nondairy milk for that lusciously creamy, saucy element. A little red curry paste for TONS of spiced flavor, and some greens wilted in at the end. Finish it with a squeeze of lime juice and it is seriously soul-satisfying. I made a few small tweaks, like adding some frozen broccoli just because I love it, and using soy instead of coconut milk and date sugar instead of coconut, just because it’s what we had on hand. It tasted amazing. Like, never need to look up another curry recipe. This is THE one.
The technique here is as simple as cooking it up in a sauté pan, keeping an eye on things to make sure nothing sticks to the pan. It seriously could not be easier. My favorite thing about this recipe, though (aside from the taste of course), was that it requires SO few ingredients, but still packs amazing flavor. Curry recipes seem to always have an ingredient list that’s approximately 8 miles long, which immediately leads me to an immediate, “nope.” The fact that this one requires one pan and very few, easy to find ingredients had me convinced to try it and I’m so, so happy it did.
This recipe now has a solid, well-earned spot in our dinner rotation. Details for Brandi’s book are below, and I HIGHLY encourage you guys to check it out. It’s absolutely beautiful, and there are tons of incredible recipes to choose from! She’s got everything from breakfast, to fun dips, soups, main dishes, and obviously my favorite, sweets!
