What to serve with this vegetarian curry
Since this recipe is hearty without being heavy, you don't need much to go alongside it.
Here are some ideas for what to have with this curry:
- Serve it on some lovely brown rice or basmati rice
- Take a gluten-free wrap and fill it up with the curry
- Or you can just eat it straight up!
No coconut oil? No problem
I like cooking with coconut oil from time to time because of the hint of coconut it gives dishes.
And coconut+curry=Yum City🏙️
But if you don't like or have coconut oil on hand, that's totally fine.
You just need some oil to saute the onions in and release the flavour of the curry powder.
Instead of coconut oil you can use olive oil or canola oil.
Substitute for white kidney beans
Instead of the white kidney beans (also known as cannellini beans), you can use chickpeas if you have them.
Other vegetables to try
If you don't have all the vegetables that the recipe calls for, no worries.
There are a bunch of different options you can try out.
Here are some vegetables you could put into the curry if you have them on hand:
- Baby bok choy
- Baby kale
- Brussel sprouts
- Green beans
- Potatoes like Yukon Gold or red skinned potatoes
This Easy Vegetarian Curry recipe makes A LOT.
Like 10 cups of curry.
So get those lunch-prep containers out and ready to fill with this healthy-goodness!
Mmmm, I can smell that classic scent wafting through your kitchen already.
I hope you love this easy vegetarian curry🙋♀️
