Vegetables in Curried Coconut Milk

It’s difficult to get my curries not to look like cat food, so you’ll just have to trust me that this one tastes good. I’m guessing this is the reason I see more curry recipes without images than with.

This creamy vegetable filled curry is even better the next day. So pack it up for lunch and know that you’re taking something healthy and flavorful with you.

Vegetables in Curried Coconut Milk
Serve as a main dish over steamy brown rice.
Print Recipe
1 large onion, sliced

6 cloves garlic, minced

3 large carrots, diced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large potato, cubed

1-1/2 cups cauliflower florets, sliced

8 mushrooms, sliced

1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Pinch of cayenne pepper

14.5 ounce can vegetable broth (or chicken if you prefer)

1 cup light coconut milk 

1 cup peas

Salt & pepper, to taste

1. In a large saucepan, sauté the onions, garlic, and carrots in oil on medium-high heat until the onions become translucent.

2. Add the vegetables, curry, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne, stirring often so they don't stick to the pan, cooking for 2-4 minutes.

3. Add the broth and coconut milk, cover, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes can be pierced easily with a fork.

4. Stir in the peas. Cook uncovered on medium-high heat stirring constantly until the liquid has thickened.

5. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over brown rice.

My curries always look slightly disastrous also. But I like to imagine that the worse they photograph, the better they taste! Love the sound of this one!

I have stayed away from curry in my cooking because spicy things make me nervous. I haven't tried coconut milk either. Maybe I should make this recipe!
