Vegetable Curry is one of our go-to EASY weeknight meals.

Vegetable Curry has quickly become one of my favorite vegetarian meals. I’ve always been a protein lover. If I have a choice for a meal I could eat every day for the rest of my life, it’d be a juicy steak. But lately Pat and I are trying to be healthier and expand our horizons, so I tried this beautiful Winter Vegetable Curry. I was blown away at the ease of the recipe as well as ALL THE FLAVOR!

I mean it when I say you won’t miss the chicken or beef in this vegetarian dish. There is plenty of spice, sustenance, crunch, and sauce to go around. Pile on the cilantro and you’re really in business (Don’t even tell me if you’re not a cilantro fan. My heart can’t take it)!

This Winter Vegetable Curry recipe is one our favorite vegetarian dishes!

What vegetables go into this Thai Vegetable Curry Recipe?

For the veggies, I chopped up some butternut squash, carrots, parsnips (who knew I loved parsnips!), onion, and sweet peppers. You could really add any of your favorite vegetables, and even make this throughout the year with whatever’s in season. It couldn’t be easier! Don’t let anything about this dish intimidate you. SO EASY! It’s so fun to eat all the colors of the rainbow. Gorgeous and delicious, just like all the best recipes.

We served this Winter Vegetable Curry over rice and devoured it in a snap. Next time I plan to make a double batch and send leftovers with Pat to work. It heats up like a dream and is so filling…it’s perfect for a healthy weekday lunch. That combined with his stand up treadmill desk his office just got…he’s really going to be Mr. Fit. For real, every time I call him, he’s out of breath (insert eye roll here).

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 white or yellow onions diced or sliced to your liking
  • 1/3 cup red curry paste
  • 1 butternut squash cubed (about 5 cups)
  • 2 parsnips chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 6 medium carrots chopped into bite-sized pieces

  • salt to taste
  • 2 13.5 ounce cans lite coconut milk (unsweetened)
  • red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium high heat. Add onion and cook until fragrant and transluscent, about 5 minutes.

This looks absolutely DELICIOUSLY amazing and healthy, a must try this week! Can you clarify the amount of red curry paste? It says"? Cup", not sure if that is to TASTE up to a cup or a typo. Thanks!

    I'm SO sorry! I don't know what happened. It should be 1/3 cup. I fixed it...thanks for pointing that out!
