Vegan Thai Red Curry with Cauliflower and Potatoes is spicy and delicious with a side of healthy! It’s the perfect, satisfying veggie-packed meal!
The inspiration behind this dish:
I actually had other plans for this head of cauliflower.
Then, it got to be Saturday night. I realized there were a bunch of vegetables in the refrigerator–including the cauliflower–that needed to be dealt with before the week began again.
Has that ever happened to you? You buy a bunch of things that look so beautiful and so fresh and then gasp… You have to do something with them or else!
Vegan Thai Red Curry with Cauliflower and Potatoes is what to make when you have too many vegetables!
This lovely vegan Thai-inspired dish has:
- Red bell pepper
But of course, use whatever vegetables you have that need to be used!
This may be controversial when it comes to someone who cooks for a living, but I no longer make my own red curry paste. I discovered Maesri (affiliate link) at a local international food market and I don’t see a reason to make my own anymore! It’s also vegan!
I don’t care for average grocery store red curry pastes because I find them wimpy. However, Maesri is the perfect substitute! It’s spicy, full of authentic flavor and inexpensive! Either make your own or use Maesri!
