I posted the “Behind-The-Scenes” of me cooking this vegan curry on my Instastories last week and you guys went mad for it! I received tons of messages asking for the recipe, so VOILA! It’s full of delicious vegetables brought to life by a creamy coconut-based curry sauce. I’m excited about this one!
Disclaimer: This was actually the first curry I’ve ever cooked so I honestly wasn’t expecting much from it taste wise (and I wouldn’t be sharing it with you if that had been the case) but hands down, best home-cooked hot dinner I have made! We currently have another two servings in the freezer and a batch ready for dinner tonight.
So satisfyingly tasty, so homely, and super nutritious at that! And you know what, let’s scrap the notion that all curries are super unhealthy and calorie loaded, I purposefully wanted to create a curry dish that was warming, full of rich flavours and gorgeous spices but not chocca-block with calories. I think I’ve struck a really good balance ;)
The only calorie-dense ingredient in the entire dish is the coconut milk, and I even then I used ‘light’ which didn’t compromise on the taste at all. It may go against my normal mantra but summer is coming, and whilst it may not sound super inspirational, calorie intake does matter peeps! Of course, if you’re not in my bikini beach bod countdown boat, full-fat coconut milk away!
I really can’t claim full ownership of this recipe either, I created it based off good old Jamie O’s dish but added in a whole load of other veg and extra ingredients that I think makes it pure perfection! It’s also a recipe for 4, I think any good curry should be made in big batches and I’m all for making your life easier! So even if it’s a meal for one, follow the full recipe and you can freeze the dish in individual portions for another day.
P.s Please don’t let the word curry scare you away! You’ll fly through the dish, promise!
