Creamy Thai Red Curry – Vegan Recipe!

Indulgent Thai red curry packed with lots of veggies!

Thai Red Curry

It’s a real comforting and warming meal, perfect in this arctic weather we’ve been having recently! It’s a rich creamy sauce, but as it’s full of veggies, it doesn’t feel too indulgent!

I will admit, I used to make all of my curry fresh from a jar from Sainsburys, purely because I always thought curry was a complicated dish to make. I was never really happy with the taste or texture of the jarred curries, as they taste a bit ‘plasticy’ to me, but it was just so easy. I’m all about shortcuts, but when it comes to curry, DON’T BE LAZY – it’s so easy to make using curry pastes. The recipe below is really straight forward, and quick. You don’t need to be a master-chef.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Total: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 inches ginger, grated
  • 2 red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 large red chillies, sliced
  • 1 courgette, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup baby sweetcorn, sliced
  • 1/2 broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup mange tout
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup red thai curry paste (double check label for quantity)
  • 1 tin full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 limes
  • Soy sauce, to taste (optional)
  • Big handful of coriander
  • Spring onion, to garnish


  1. Fry the onion, garlic, ginger, peppers, and chilies in coconut oil for 2 minutes until the onions have browned a little.
  2. Add the sweetcorn, courgettes, broccoli, mange tout, cashews and curry paste and fry for 5 minutes on a medium-high heat.

  5. Cook on a low heat for 10 minutes and serve with the fresh rice.
