Thai Yellow Curry - Vegan

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

As a student, I can't really afford to visit Thai restaurants daily...otherwise I would. Yellow curry is one of my favorite Thai dishes. This is a recipe I've modified to my own taste and diet. Hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and I have!

Used this as a base to make my own. Very good recipe. Need to add the soy sauce for flavor. Thanks Dustin

I thought the flavor was extraordinary! Thai Yellow Curry is one of my favorites! The carrots were not quite tender by the time it was "warmed through", so next time I will add them earlier. I loved how many veggies were in this dish, the mushrooms were a nice touch!

I highly recommend this vegan curry recipe~ Took longer than an hour for me (prep + cook time) but the final product is well worth it! I used a yellow bell pepper instead of red (more expensive) and a green jalapeno chile for the heat in my 'homemade' curry paste for flavor (the coconut milk masks the flavor a lot). For instructions on how to make a Thai "yellow curry paste" yourself, look up ( I tried to make it myself without the shrimp paste as I'm nitpicky that way about "vegan" recipes. Tasted great!
