This curry has been on rotation at our house for a couple weeks now and I just love how easy it is. I love eating far more than I love cooking, so the faster I can get meals on the table, the better. Plus simple meals mean less clean up and I’m all about that!

It calls for just a handful of simple, everyday ingredients prepared with minimal effort. Chop a few veggies, throw everything in a pan, simmer for about 10 minutes and serve. We’ve been having it over brown rice with plenty of fresh cilantro for a filling, healthy meal.

  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 14 oz. can light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or gluten-free tamari

  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Add all the veggies to a wok or large skillet, add a splash of water and cook over medium-high heat for a few minutes. 
  2. Add everything else and cook for 7-8 minutes until the veggies are al dente or cooked to your liking.
