Bowls of Rich Red Curry with Roasted Vegetables alongside a cutting board with fresh limes, peppers, and herbs for serving

In this part of the world, we’re right smack-dab in the middle of winter and oh my is it cold. Chilly temps leave me wanting nothing but hot drinks, long baths, fireside chats (yes, that’s a thing), and hearty comfort food. Enter this rich red curry.

If you’re looking to spice things up in the kitchen but still get in a ton of good-for-you vegetables and anti-inflammatory spices, this is the recipe for you. Let’s do this!

Freshly roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, and cabbage on a parchment-lined baking sheet

About Red Curry

Red curry is a popular Thai dish made with a base of red curry paste, coconut milk, and vegetables, meat, and/or seafood. The paste is typically made with red chilies, garlic, lemongrass, and other herbs and spices (source), making it spicy and fragrant!

Our inspired plant-based version uses these same Thai flavors, but roasts the vegetables for added caramelized flavor.

How to Make This Recipe

This curry requires just 30 minutes to prepare and ingredients you likely have on hand right now!

For vegetables, I went with sweet potatoes, cabbage, and broccoli because: favorites. But you could sub whatever seasonal vegetable is lingering around your kitchen at the moment. Otherwise, it’s basics like shallot, ginger (hello digestive and anti-inflammatory best friend), curry paste, and coconut milk.

Sauteing shallots, garlic, ginger, and curry paste for Rich Red Curry with Roasted Vegetables

While the vegetables roast away, simply sauté the garlic and shallot (add a pepper for extra heat!) and add in the curry paste and coconut milk plus a little turmeric (nature’s gold dust) and coconut aminos. Then you’re in curry heaven.

Serve with cauliflower rice, brown rice, or quinoa for even more deliciousness and comfort factor.

I hope you all LOVE this curry! It’s:

Hearty
Rich
Spicy
Comforting
Super flavorful
Versatile
& Amazingly delicious

This would make the perfect quick meal to put on the table during the week or when you’re hosting guests, as it’s a crowd pleaser. It’s perfect the day of and even better as leftovers, in my opinion, which makes it ideal for batch cooking and reheating throughout the week for easy lunches and dinners.

Ingredients

VEGETABLES

  • 1 large sweet potato (cubed, skin on)
  • 2 cups broccoli or cauliflower (chopped, large stems removed)
  • 1 1/2 cups red cabbage (sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp neutral oil (divided// such as avocado or coconut // if oil-free, sub water)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp curry powder (or store bought)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

CURRY

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (if oil-free, sub water)
  • 2/3 cup shallot (chopped)
  • 6 cloves garlic* (minced)
  • 5 Tbsp ginger (freshly minced)
  • 6 Tbsp red curry paste (ensure vegan friendly*, or DIY*)
  • 2 14-ounce cans light coconut milk (sub full fat for richer sauce)
  • 1 healthy pinch sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup (or coconut sugar* // plus more to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos (or sub tamari or soy sauce if not gluten-free // plus more to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice (plus more to taste)

FOR SERVING optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C) and line a baking sheet (or more, as needed) with parchment paper.
  • Add vegetables to a mixing bowl and toss with with oil (or water), maple syrup, curry powder, and sea salt. Add the sweet potatoes to a baking sheet (leaving broccoli and cabbage behind) and roast for 10 minutes.
  • At the 10-minute mark, remove pan from oven and add broccoli and cabbage (this way, the cabbage and broccoli won’t burn). Return to oven and roast for 12-15 minutes more.
  • In the meantime, prepare curry by heating a large rimmed skillet or pot over medium heat. Once hot, add coconut oil (or water), shallot, garlic, and ginger. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add curry paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add coconut milk, sea salt, turmeric, maple syrup, and coconut aminos. Whisk to combine, and once bubbling, reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes. Then add lime juice.
  • Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more turmeric for earthy flavor, curry paste for spice or curry flavor, coconut aminos or salt for saltiness, maple syrup for sweetness, or lime juice for acidity. I added more lime juice, coconut aminos, and a bit more turmeric.
  • Optional: Transfer sauce to a blender (or use an immersion blender) and blend on high until puréed. This makes the sauce creamier, but it isn’t necessary.
  • To serve, divide the sauce between serving bowls and rest some veggies in the center along with a spoonful of (optional) rice or grain of choice. Garnish with cilantro or lime wedges (optional).
  • This dish is delicious fresh and as leftovers. Store leftovers (separately) in the refrigerator up to 4 days. Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until hot.

Notes

*My favorite vegan curry brands are Thai True and Thai Kitchen.
*If using our DIY Red Curry Paste in this recipe, we recommend adding more of it as it is less concentrated than store-bought brands.
*4 cloves garlic is equal to approximately 2 Tbsp minced garlic.
*1 Tbsp (12 g) coconut sugar can be used in place of 1 Tbsp maple syrup in curry.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with oil and without sides/garnishes. Serves 2 as an entrée, 4 as a side. For more protein, top with roasted cashews or serve with quinoa.
*Prep time does not indicate total hands-on prep time, but also includes prep completed while other items are cooking.

  1. Laura says

    Delicious, easy weeknight dinner! I roast up whatever I have on hand (most recently sweet potato, onion, cauliflower, mushrooms) and that works great. Love this recipe and keep coming back to it!

  2. becky says

    This is my FAVORITE red curry recipe. We mix up the veggies and add chicken and it’s perfect! Thanks for another winner :)

  3. Nidhi says

    Hi Dana! I want to make this next week and I want to add tofu. Do you have any tofu links that would be really good with this curry? Or should I just do the same as for the roasted veggies? If so, should I marinade the tofu for a few hours and how long should I keep the tofu in the oven?

  4. Ashley says

    This was FANTASTIC! As another reviewer wrote, it is now my go-to curry recipe. I loved the roasted veg but I imagine any veggies would do. Thanks again for another wonderful recipe. You guys are the best!

  5. Jo says

    I made this tonight from scratch .. I didn’t have coriander and I used cream as well as coconut milk and it was amazing !!! Fab !! Try it !!

  6. Ramona says

    Hi Dana,
    I made your recipe the other day and it turned out delicious. In fact, I was just looking for a red curry sauce recipe to use up my store-bought red curry paste, therefore I followed your curry (sauce) recipe to the T, but got lazy when it came to roasting the vegetables. I bet the dish is even tastier with roasted veggies. Next time I’ll bake and roast them too.

    Btw, I’ve included Minimalist Baker to my list of 100+ must-know vegan blogs.

    Kind regards,
    Ramona

  7. pooja says

    i made this but modified a little. used potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. skipped the garlic. tastes delicious. adapted ingredients to suit my taste. veered mostly on the sweetside. loved it!

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Thanks so much for sharing, Pooja. We are so glad you enjoyed it! Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? It’s super helpful for us and other readers. Thanks so much! Xo

  8. Adrienne Smith says

    Go to recipe for me now. Easy to adapt to what we have on hand in the fridge. Great flavor!

  9. Minoshka Correa says

    Delicious! This is my favorite and will be a regular in my cooking plan. Followed your recipe to the T and it was yummy

  10. Mari Linares says

    I made my own version of this as I didn’t have enough Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste left so I got creative with spices and swamped some of the veggies for stuff I actually had at hand, but LOVED the concept of making the veggies repeatedly. I batch cook for the week often and this kept much better than my mushy past tries. Loved it!

  11. Lucy says

    Wow Dana this is absolutely delicious! The whole family loved it – we are big fans of your site, thank you! I made this using half the amount of ginger, 2 cloves of garlic, 3T of curry paste and used Tamari instead of coconut aminos because that’s what I had. It wasn’t too spicy for the kids and they LOVED it – perfect balance of flavours and the roasted vegetables are genius, we used roasted broccoli, sweet potatoes, cauliflower and then I heated up peas and threw in some pak choi at the end which was yummy. Served over white rice. I will definitely be making this again.

  12. Melody says

    This is very good. I used my immersion blender to smooth the sauce as it was a bit gritty. I used asparagus, broccoli, yellow pepper and sweet potato. Excellent!

  13. Melody says

    This was very good. Used one can lite coconut milk and half a can of almond milk. Used sweet potato, broccoli, asparagus and yellow pepper. Used rice as the grain. Thank you for a great recipe!

      Thanks so much for the lovely review, Melody. We are so glad you enjoyed it! Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? It’s super helpful for us and other readers. Thanks so much! Xo

  14. Nicole says

    Hi! I’m planning on making this sometime this week and was wondering- can I sub in chicken for the sweet potatoes? Would it stay the same or would I need to make any adjustments to the seasonings or sauce?

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      We think that would work! We would say cut the chicken in small cubes and add when you add the curry paste (if the chicken is not pre-cooked). Let us know how it goes!

  15. Christine says

    SO delicious. I made this the other night and used the leftover sauce on veggies, vermicelli and quinoa for a few meals after. Tastes SO SO good with the roasted vegetables, I used broccoli, zucchini, and carrots. Didn’t have coconut aminos so subbed a tiny bit of soy sauce. The way mine turned out I think it would also make a great dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls. I might try that next time.

  16. Kassandra says

    I am a big fan of red curry, and I thought this red curry was one of the best I have ever had in restaurants or made myself. The maple syrup really put it over the edge for me ( I have never used it before in curry). I followed the recipe exactly except I made these changes based on my own preferences:
    – I used 1.5 cans of full fat coconut milk instead of 2 full cans of lite coconut milk
    – Instead of coconut aminos, used only 1 tbsp of lite soy sauce
    – I used 1 tbsp of maple syrup instead of 2
    – I also probably used more salt than normal to taste

    So yummy, will definitely be making it again. I can’t seem to get the ginger fine enough, so 6 tbsp seemed like a lot because I couldn’t cut it fine enough. Next time, I will use an immersion blender for that.

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Sorry to hear that! Did you use full fat or light coconut milk? If light, we’d recommend full fat next time for a richer sauce.

  17. Linda says

    Oh my gosh this was so good and really hit the spot on this cold, dreary day! Loved the roasted vegetables (I like my veggies a little more cooked). The creamy curry sauce was super flavorful. I also added a touch of cayenne and will try a chopped pepper next time (because there will definitely be a next time). Thanks so much!

  18. Eva says

    Today is going to be my 3rd time making this. I love it so much! Now every time I see hot peppers at the farmer’s market, I snatch them up and run home and make the red curry paste. Tonight I will be making it with fresno chilis so I’m really excited for the flavor. This recipe is so good and you can really use whatever veggies you have on hand. I like to use the suggested ones in the recipe and add whatever I need to get rid of in the fridge. It’s a hit with my husband and we both spend the day texting each other that it’s Red Curry night! Thanks for the dinner time inspiration. You never disappoint.

  19. Elizabeth says

    This was really good! I made it exactly as stated, except I forgot the lime juice. Will definitely make again. Appreciated that it was so much healthier (and tastier) than takeout.

  20. Patricia Aguilar says

    This is delicious. Bonus: the sauce is so perfect that it could be used to augment any kind of roasted vegetable mix you prefer. Fortunately, I happen to love roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli. I think you could even use this to re-energize leftover vegetables. Either way, this is about to become a staple in my kitchen.

  21. Amanda says

    That took me more like an hour and a half. I did double the recipe but I commend anyone who finished this in 30 min because you are clearly amazing ?

  22. Alexandra says

    Hi Dana,

    I’m not sure why I can’t get the link to open from the email that came to me when you responded to my post about Tarkari. Without the link working I figured I would just post another comment in response. Tarkari is a type of Nepalese curry dish with a vegetable base (basically any vegetables that are available at any given time…I love it with cauliflower). I have only ever had it at a restaurant near my home, but I would love to make it myself. The restaurant (Himal Chuli in Madison, WI) describes tarkari as “Fresh vegetables stew with turmeric, coriander, cumin, fresh garlic and ginger.” Though I sometimes use other sources for recipes, yours are consistently my and my husband’s favorites and I would be thrilled to follow a recipe you create for tarkari!

    Thanks!

  23. Alexandra says

    Yet another amazing recipe from minimalistbaker. I would love to also see a recipe for tarkari! I bet you would come up with an excellent, easy way to prepare tarkari.

      • Lee Ann Roberts says

        It looks like it’s a Nepalese curry. I’m checking out recipes for it right now.

        Thanks for all of the curry recipes you posted today. They look delicious!

  24. Brandon says

    The 6 Tbsp red curry paste didn’t seem to sit well for us. Perhaps too much? Otherwise, good ingredients for curry.

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Brandon, depending on the brand of curry paste you use, it could potentially be too much. We like Thai Kitchen brand in this recipe. Hope that helps!

  25. Pete DiGenova says

    Hey you guys I’m a big fan of your recipes.
    This one was excellent, I did vary it slightly I substituted broccoli rabe for the broccoli.
    It really worked well, the bitterness of the rabe was complimented by the sweetness of the dish not to mention the texture of the cabbage and rabe are great together as too.
    Cheers!

  26. Nathan says

    This was amazing! The curry was super flavoursome (I used Maesri branded curry paste) and the extra kick from the baked veg was perfect. I added mushroom and red capsicum to the milk and cooked for 5 mins before serving. The smell was so good it enticed the housemate to emerge from thier room and try some ?
    5/5!

  27. Kasha says

    I’ve made this recipe 5+ times, it’s one of my favorites! My brother made it for me when I was visiting him. Each time it was great. I love the combination of roasted vegetables. The red curry sauce is excellent!

  28. Harri says

    Really yummy! I roasted the veggies ahead of time – ended up having them in the oven for about 40 mins and just added them 5 or so mins before the end to heat through. Will definitely make again.

  29. Stephanie Moran says

    I haven’t made a curry in a while but looked this up in the supermarket carpark today before my food shop and I’m so glad I did! Wow, the flavour tastes so yummy! I can’t wait to eat this for my work lunches over the next few days. The only thing I did different was use a tin of coconut milk and a carton of coconut cream as I only noticed after chopping the veg I only had 1 can of coconut milk. But it turned out so good, so next time I’ll use the coconut cream with the milk again.

  30. Nayomi Karthigesu says

    Hi! I followed this recipe to a T (apart from subbing the sweet potato for regular potatoes because I don’t like the taste of the former in curries) but the sauce turned out watery and yellow, rather than the glossy red sauce in your pics (I used your DIY curry paste too ;)) and was wondering why that would be? That being said, it tasted great but was a little sad the sauce was not as thick and red as expected – I blended it and simmered it for ages too.

    Thanks Dana!

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Nayomi, sorry for the confusion! We used store-bought curry paste when we made this recipe. Our DIY blend is less concentrated and therefore requires using more of it in order to achieve the same results as store-bought. We have added a note to clarify this for the future. Thanks for letting us know!

  31. Kara says

    This was so good!! I told my husband that if he did the parent teacher conferences, I would have something delicious on the table when he got home. Wow! This blew it out of the park! We were both so happy with this recipe. I couldn’t find sweet potatoes so I used 2 yams. Chopped them up along with 2 carrots and boiled them for a few minutes before tossing with the broccoli and cabbage and spices. I ended up roasted them all together. Except for that , I followed the recipe to a T. Highly recommend!! He promises to go to the other kids’ parent teacher conferences too if I make this! ha. So worth it.

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Kara, so glad you and your husband enjoyed this! Thanks for the lovely story and review! xo

  32. Savannah says

    So so so good. Best and easiest curry recipe I’ve ever found. I sautéed the veggies on high heat instead of roasting because my oven is tiny, still came out great. I can’t wait to eat this all week.

  33. Karen says

    I have tried to make curry MANY times and my family, nor myself have ever liked them…. until NOW!
    I LOVE this! And it is so versatile- can easily pick and choose other veggies to roast. This is DELICIOUS! Thank you for the recipe!

  34. anupama gali says

    Hi Dana,

    I always feel some raw taste from the curry when I cook this (I use thai kitchen brand like you and I follow the exact same time mentioned in your recipe; Only difference that I see is that I use soy sauce instead of aminos and my coconut milk is from O2 vons. I also add different set of unroasted veggies). The raw taste comes from the curry paste as though it is not cooked enough. Any tips for me?

  35. Linda Barnby | Hello Sweet Life says

    I made this tonight. I am not a cook. My husband has always done the lion’s share of the cooking. So I am a novice cook learning to cook so I can transition to a plant-based diet. There are a lot of ingredients and a lot of moving parts in this recipe. I wasn’t able to carry on a conversation while I cooked this recipe!! Everyone loved the dish so I will make it again! However, in future, I will measure out all the many ingredients and combine them where indicated well before I start cooking. Having to measure on the fly as I am needing to add them to the sauted ingredients, for example, caused this novice cook more than a little stress. I did opt to blend the curry as a final step to make it creamier and I’m glad I did. I used quinoa. In future, I think I’d prefer rice which will do a better job of soaking up the delicious curry. In making the first sauce to douse the roasted vegetables, I realized I needed twice the amount to cover the vegetables. I used broccoli, sweet potato and red cabbage as I love those veggies too. In making the curry, I adjusted the flavor to make it sweeter by adding two additional tablespoons of maple syrup and that made it just right. I neglected to buy coconut aminos, so I don’t know how the addition of that might have altered the taste. We will be enjoying our leftovers for several days!

  36. Suzanne says

    One of my very favorite recipes. Just used red peppers in place of cabbage and a few carrots. Yum! Would work with any vegetable. So easy too. Thanks for your fantastic recipes. I love that they are SO healthy.

  37. George H. says

    Love the recipes and photos, but aren’t you folks going pretty heavy on the advertising these days?! It’s one thing to make some money with the occasional, intrusive ad, it’s a whole other level to blanket your site and pages with horrible advertising. Nobody likes advertising except the corporations and the people making money from “selling their souls”.

    I’m going to rethink my desire to use this site. I used to love it. Now, it feels toxic and insulting. Do other readers agree? This world is full of foulness. I can accept that because I don’t expect this fallen “world” to offer anything truly worthwhile anyway. But when you find something nice and it feels genuine, it’s startling and objectionable when the creators of that thing show you their nasty side and throw you under the bus of commercialism.

    I guess my faith needs to be redirected where it’s best suited, above. Humanity is weak and shows it’s love of this world every day, regardless of my hope in humanity. It’s the same, sad story of mankind re-enacted time and time again: to sin is human. Thank Gog, literally, we can be saved from all this nonsense.

  38. Sandy C says

    I’ve made this several times with different vegetables and it’s my favorite curry recipe! The sauce can be stretched easily with a little extra broth or water if you like it a little thinner (my kids prefer it that way). Otherwise, I make it as written and it pleases every time! Thank you!!

  39. Melanie says

    This is the best authentic-tasting curry! I have made the recipe as written but I’ve also subbed the vegetables I have on hand and added chickpeas or lentils. It comes out so freaking creamy and delicious (use the regular full fat–not lite, guys!). I think it has a perfect amount of heat without the maple syrup so it can easily be made without that. Thanks for making such a solid curry recipe, Dana!

    • Mari Schimmer says

      We’ve made this several times with great results! My omnivore partner loves it as much as I do. We subbed kale for the red cabbage this time, but simmered the kale in the curry sauce rather than roasting. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe!

  40. Nancy Simoneau says

    I have made many homemade Red Curry recipes and I have to say this is the best one. The flavor tastes just like red curry from the restaurant. I will definitely be adding this to my dinner rotation. Minimalist Baker has the best recipes!

  41. Jenn says

    We love this recipe. I usually double it when I make it!!
    Did we recipe recently change? For example: It used to say 4Tbsp for curry paste and now it’s 6. Why the change?

  42. Stacey Robinson says

    This recipe was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try it with out veggies especially now that fall veggies are in season. I added extra red curry paste and lime because I like spicy and tangy. Ate it over brown rice and added some chopped, toasted cashews.

  43. Amber says

    We had this for dinner tonight at our house, and WOW! It was a simple enough weeknight dinner and the flavors were so rich. We we definitely be making this again! Great job!

  44. Aisha says

    I was wondering…do the vegetables gets mixed into the curry or are they eaten on the side. This probably sounds silly, but I wasn’t sure since the recipe didn’t specify.

    Thanks!

  45. Debbie says

    This curry is delicious! Love the roasted veggies and the sauce is incredible! Will definitely be holding on to this recipe!

  46. Lauren Dorsey says

    I made this exactly as written and it was AMAZING! I don’t know that I’ve ever roasted red cabbage before but I loved the way it tasted and the curry sauce was so flavorful and rich. I will definitely make this again!

  47. Jamie says

    This was a hit with the family! I substituted some kale from the garden for a portion of the cabbage, just because I had it…worked great. To make it more kid-friendly, I used only 3 Tbsp curry paste and then used 2 Tbsp maple syrup. I topped it also with toasted cashews. My son went back for seconds. Thanks Dana!!!

  48. Samantha Gasmire says

    This recipe as all your other recipes are delicious. The only problem I had with it was that the sweet potatoes were not fully cooked but were very crunchy. :/

  49. Sarah says

    My favorite curry dish I’ve ever ever made! I think blending the sauce made it super creamy, which I loved. I didn’t have to tweak the ingredients at all to get the taste I wanted. Seriously so pumped about this recipe.

  50. Simone says

    This is one of my go-to recipes now. It’s delicious, nutritious, filling, and quite easy to put together. I’ve subbed out the vegetables for anything you can think of (carrots, pumpkin, butternut, cauliflower) and it’s always been great (though sweet potato has a special spot in my heart). Thanks for the incredible recipe!

  51. Juliette says

    This is one of my favorite curries to make! When I make cauliflower rice as a side this will last me for at least 4 meals. I’ve added avocado before to make it a touch more filling and its delicious

  52. @riri_nyc says

    I made this at least 5 times and am going to make it tomorrow night for a hot date :)
    The description “RICH” in the title, is PERFECT. It had the most rich flavors I have ever tasted!
    I didn’t have to change or add a single thing (this is always the case with your recipes!)
    PERFECTION! :)
    Thank you!
    -Rita

  53. Cathy says

    This recipe was delicious! I ended up leaving the salt out because the curry paste I was using was already pretty loaded with sodium… this totally worked out, recipe had just the right saltiness. I skipped the oil too and found that there were helpful hints in a separate recipe on minimalist baker for oil free vegetable roasting :)
    Biggest switch I made was to use unsweetened soy milk and coconut extract to substitute for coconut milk (had recently read about this online as a coconut milk alternative)… it’s not as thick, but flavor is remarkably similar. I just cooked the sauce until it naturally thickened over time.
    Thanks Dana for such a lovely meal!

  54. Jessica says

    Dana – I have made many receives from your website and they are all wonderful! I am yet to find a receive that I don’t like. This curry sauce is delicious and I would have never thought to roast purple cabbage but it was delicious. Thank You!

  55. Katie says

    Just made this recipe as a meal prep for my lunches for the week and it was so easy and delicious! I used extra veggies and roasted for a bit longer, and served it over brown rice and I LOVED IT! Will definitely make again!

  56. Michelle says

    I have made many things from Minimalist Baker and therefore it makes me very sad to write this. I made this recipe exactly as written last week, filled my bowl with veggies, rice, and sauce and couldn’t finish the plate. I actually ended up throwing out the sauce.

    I’m very sorry Minimalist Baker!!!!! But that won’t keep me from coming back and trying other things!

  57. Patricia Anne Hingston says

    I made this tonight and it turned out so good! I made many modifications including lemon not lime juice, onion instead of shallot, and added tofu and mushrooms. Its very filling I found so I may use low fat coconut milk next time.

  58. Amelia Woodbridge says

    This is a delicious recipe! The flavors are amazing and is definitely something I’ll make again. I will have to make more to have left overs next time!

  59. Samantha says

    This recipe was DELICIOUS. The veggies had good flavor on their own after roasting, but the curry sauce was to die for. My husband and I both LOVED it! (I used tamari sauce instead of coconut aminos)

  60. julia höök says

    I must have done somthing wrong here or have the wrong red curry past because it’s so hot and my boyfriend is Indian an not even he can eat it. Is it really 4tbsp red curry paste? I bought my curry past in the store and it was the regular kind so that’s why am confused. Tried to double the amount of counut milk but that did not work ?

  61. Shanna says

    This recipe is amazing. I tweaked it by adding eggplant, mushrooms, green beans, garbanzo beans, cauliflower, brocolli, zucchini, butternut squash, a medley of diced potatoes and diced tomatoes in a large pot simmered down – and it was amazingly good and full of fiber.

      Yay! Those are great additions to the recipe, Shanna! We’re so glad you enjoyed it :D

    Just made this recipe for myself and my boyfriend – we are huge curry fans. Loved it! So simple, yet so delicious! Tasted like curry from a Thai restaurant :)

  63. Courtney says

    This was an absolutely phenomenal dish! The instructions were clear and it was super easy to make. I honestly loved this and plan to make it many more times. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Hi Dana,
    I tried this last night and it was so good!! Thank you so much for the recipe!

    I had a question about the sweet potato though, every time I roast sweet potato I feel like maybe I’m overdoing it. It gets super soft and I’m just not sure if that’s the correct texture I’m trying to aim for. I did exactly what your recipe called for. I’m just wondering if it’s supposed to be firmer?

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Stephanie! Thanks for reaching out. Your sweet potato should be pretty soft overall, but if you’re finding that you would prefer a harder consistency, cook for less time! It should be fairly soft

  66. Christine says

    The flavor of this curry is excellent, much better than other recipes I’ve tried. I think the proportions and ingredients were just right. I didn’t have red cabbage or broccoli in the house so I used a bell pepper and green beans in addition to the sweet potato. Would definitely want to try red cabbage next time.

  67. Angie Vargas says

    I made this dinner tonight and it was soooooo good! I did not have any rice or couscous on hand so I served it on top of fried polenta! I will definitely make it that way again!
    I also only had green curry paste so I added a tablespoon of tomato paste.
    This is the third of your recipes that I have tried and they are wonderful! I find myself coming back to your website over and over for ideas since my husband and I recently switched to a plant based diet.
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes!

    I found your blog by accident and so glad I did. I made this for my family yesterday and it was amazing. I used the recipe as a base and tweaked it to my liking. I’ll be making this again along with the other delicious recipes on your blog.

  69. Laura says

    This dish is just layer upon layer of amazing flavor! I made it exactly per the recipe, but the curry sauce is so versatile I have a feeling you could use it on just about anything. My new favorite MB recipe!

  70. Katherine says

    I made this last week, and it was so delicious. It was the most flavorful curry I’ve made at home and the veggies mixture was divine, I ate the vegs by themselves the next day.
    Question: when I made the curry I only had enough for two servings, and it was more of a sauce rather soupy. Your pictures appear to have more liquid. Just wondering if you doubled the recipe for serving or if some veggie stock/water may be missing?

  71. Rebecca says

    I made this tonight and wow… delicious. It took me a while to prepare and make, but next time will be faster I’m sure. Sweet, spicy, salty, earthy—the more I ate, the more I liked it. Thank you!

  72. Lauren says

    Made this tonight, it was so delicious! Thank you Dana! About 90% of the food I make is from your recipes, you’re amazing! :)

  73. Mary says

    Absolutely delicious! My new favorite comfort food. I’ve made this 3 times in the last two weeks. I omitted the curry powder because I hate the flavor and the lime juice because I didn’t have any. I’ve varied the amount of curry paste: 3 tbsp, then 1 tsp, then 1 tbsp; 1 tsp is too little, but 1 tbsp is too much for most of my friends. I’ll try 2 tsp next time. I used 2 cups each of butternut squash, sweet potato, cauliflower, and red cabbage the first time. The second time I used green beans instead of the sweet potato, but they watered down the sauce too much. I have tried two different brands of coconut milk, one much richer and thicker than the other, but both sauces were delicious. The first time only I separated the cabbage and cauliflower from the sweet potato and butternut squash for roasting. Now I just roast everything together. Since my veggies aren’t completely cooked in the oven, I put everything in the crockpot for about an hour or simmer in a pot on the stove until my veggies are almost tender.

    I made this to the letter & it was amazing.!!!! I love the combo of all the ingredients.
    Thank you so much !

  75. Angela says

    WELL, I adore this recipe. I used to have a favorite red curry (with cauliflower) recipe from America’s Test Kitchen that I’ve made a ton, and I have to say that this is far and away the BEST homemade red curry recipe I’ve ever ever had. Better than ATK! It was quick, and I really like how the curry is poured over the veggies, rather than stewed. I love the roasted vegetables, and how rich and fresh tasting the curry is. I actually used roasted sweet and plain potatoes (diced small), then added cauliflower after 10-15 minutes, because that’s what I had on hand (and thought I’d be using my ATK recipe). I shared with my husband, but quickly scrambled to make more curry the next day to replenish my curry levels. The second time, I added a bit more lime and red curry paste. I’m printing this recipe out and laminating it so I can make it for eternity.

  76. Sabina says

    This is my new fav Thai Red Curry recipe. I’ve tried several but roasting the veg before and adding it at the end it key. Absolutely delicious. Thanks!

  77. Pennie says

    Looks delicious…not a big cabbage fan though…how might I substitute another green? I was thinking of pre-cooking some chard ans adding at the end??

  78. Alex says

    Planning on making this for a dinner party! Any recommendations for an additional dish that would pair well? Thanks!

  79. Lacey says

    Dana, this was AMAZING! And it was super simple to make. I didn’t make the veggies you recommend in the recipe. I did my own combo of roasted veggies and served it with the curry sauce. The substitutions I made were: ghee instead of coconut oil for sauteing the onion and garlic, grounds ginger because I didn’t feel like mincing fresh, and soy sauce because I’m not gf. It made my apartment smell amazing and it tastes amazing also. I will definitely be making this again for my husband. He will LOVE it!

  80. Ana says

    This was so good! We changed up the the vegetable mixture some, but that sauce is the real winner. We roasted broccoli, sweet potatoes, and green beans, sauteed some kale, and added some garbanzos and tofu to up the protein. Made for great leftovers too!

  81. Larissa says

    Hi Dana! I made this recipe few days after your post and it was AMAZING! The curry sauce wasn’t that thick, but it was delicious anyways. I also added organic baby carrots to my vegetables. Thanks a lot!

  82. Carly says

    Wow! A+! I did not add any maple syrup or coconut sugar, substituted pink himalayan salt for sea salt, and substituted butternut squash for sweet potato to make this recipe SCD legal. It is spicy for sure! The butternut squash I did in half-moon mandoline slices and cooked under the same instructions for sweet potato. Perfect consistency! Will make this again for sure, but be a bit more careful with my salt. :)

  83. Mike Schrankel says

    Well done!
    I made this last night. The only change I made was to add a can of chick-peas to bump up the protein. My family loved it, even my meat-and-potatoes teenage son!

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Morgan! If you find that it is too thin next time, I recommend letting the liquid simmer longer without stirring. Simmering curry without additional thickening ingredients allows excess liquid to evaporate. Hope this helps!

  84. Abby says

    I made this tonight (only diff was soy sauce instead of aminos) and it was flipping AMAZING!!! I never need to go to a Thai restaurant again….now I need to try your vegan Thai iced tea :D THANK YOU!!!

  85. Lisa says

    This was so delicious!!! Made exactly as written aside from adding some green beans and basil. First time trying the coconut aminos that have been sitting unopened in my pantry for months and wish I would have at least doubled or tripled the recipe for leftovers! Thanks for this and all of your recipes-you make me a very happy vegetarian Celiac! :)

  86. Sara says

    I loved this, have made it twice already.
    Think I might have found the perfect way to eat more broccoli, baked is the answer.

    Another five star recipe.

  87. Megan says

    Wow. I am eating this right now. And I am in love! I made cauliflower rice to go with it. And I am very very happy.

  88. Michelle says

    I only had green curry, but I loved it and so did my husband. I will make this with red curry the next time. Now I have two bowls of leftovers for lunch’s this week

  89. Sarah T. says

    I made this last night and it was DELICIOUS!
    Followed the recipe exactly and doubled the so I could eat it throughout the week for lunch! As one other reviewer said, it is a little on the salty side for my palate, but my partner didn’t think so. Next time I might cut back on the aminos.
    WE did add tofu for extra protein (cooked separately in our air-fryer) to sauce right before serving which was a great addition.

    Might i add, the veggies on their own are AMAZING. I might start roasting my veggies like that more regularly as I found the hint of curry great!

  90. Darlene says

    I just made this , delicious ! Followed recipe exactly , used coconut sugar instead of maple syrup . Thank you ?

  91. Sophie says

    This was so rich, delicious, and easy! The different colored veggies, potatoes, and red curry was also very beautiful. I ate it for dinner and 2 lunches with brown rice. I had a little of the curry sauce left and put it on some bread, and that was delicious too :)

  92. Lauren says

    I made this with no changes or substitutions to the recipe- loved the curry base, but the red cabbage totally threw off the flavors for me- I found it made it super bitter. Next time, I’ll definitely leave the cabbage out and maybe play around with the different veggies to roast.

  93. Jane says

    This was a winner at our house! My husband loves curry. I used low sodium soy sauce and actually did not have as much as ginger as it called for, but it was still good. I doubled it as we like leftovers. Used one can of full fat coconut milk and one can of light coconut milk. The fresh lime on the top was the finishing touch that made it scrumptious. Thanks for this great recipe!

  94. Chelsea McLaughlin says

    Delicious! I used soy sauce instead of coconut aminos & didn’t have enough red curry paste so I used green to make up the difference. Also doubled it so we could have leftovers. Husband went bananas & said it’s better than the Panang Curry dish from True Food Kitchen. High praise as that’s his fav!

  95. Sandy Brown Jensen says

    Okay, this is a keeper, for sure! Once I got the concept, I decided to just roast what I had on hand–sweet potato, celery, mushrooms, kohlrabi, carrots. I just threw the whole lot in the oven for 30 minutes and nothing burned and it didn’t all turn to mush, either–just right. I served it over Lundgren’s Red Thai Curry Brown Rice, but it’s the sauce that pulls it altogether into something sensational.

    I have a wonder, Dana…what if you developed a similar sauce without the coconut milk (cuz you know I used the full fat version!) and used jarred red peppers and whirled it all up in the Vitamix?

    I had enough leftovers for part of a second meal. I’m going to stir in white beans and bake it with a bread crumb/non dairy cheese topping–serve with the left over red curry sauce. Can’t think why that wouldn’t be a good thing.

    Thanks for a super recipe! I gave it four stars so I would have a star left over for something that just blows me out of the water…no, that’s lousy thinking–it works great for a weekday meal, so five stars.

  96. Augusta Slocum says

    Amazing!!! As always. Thank you so much for all your recipes. My husband I are curry takeout hounds and now I have a curry recipe I can make at home that satisfies my curry addiction ?. All of my vegan friends rely on your website. Would love to see a vegan cookbook from you. It would be a staple in my kitchen!

  97. Raquel says

    Eating right now and I feel like I HAVE to tell you how much I’m enjoying this! Wow, amazing. Thank you for sharing! :)

  98. Amanda says

    This is one of my favorite dishes to make. I just throw it in the blender (with extra spices) & roast different veggies in different ways. It’s great with any grain or rice, too. As always.. perfect. Thanks!

  99. Callie Straka says

    I love the depth and richness of this curry! I added carrots to the curry, and opted to blend it. And I red bell pepper to the veggie mix. I will definitely make this again!

  100. Jen says

    I feel like I have made most of your curries (and LOVED them all), but this one is my favorite!! Love the roasted veggies and the sweetness of the sauce! Thank you for making dinner (and leftover lunch) something to look forward to! :)

  101. Sarah says

    Made almost as written but with coconut cream and different veggies. It was absolutely amazing. Tastes just like our favorite Thai restaurant. I did blend the sauce and I think that helped with the creaminess.

  102. Hilary says

    This is a very tasty recipe and quite easy to make, too! I might double the curry the next time I make it, though, because the roughly two cups of curry the recipe makes is a bit scant for 4 servings for my curry loving palate.

  103. Indie says

    Super easy to make and so yummy!!!! I doubled the recipe b/c I didn’t think the curry would be enough but you don’t need much of the curry, it’s sure rich. So good!

  104. Vivian Patten says

    I made this for dinner last night, and it was DELICIOUS – like every other Minimalist Baker recipe I’ve tried!!! I have made several curries, but the depth of flavor in this one was really special! Roasting the vegetables added such great flavor too! I will definitely be making this one again and again! Thank you, Dana!!!!

  105. Krysta says

    Could this recipe be done without using any sweetener? Normally I’m fine with adding a little bit of sugar, but I’m currebtly trying to stay away from any added sugar. Thanks!

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerDana @ Minimalist Baker says

      The sweetener balances out the flavors, but if you’re looking to avoid sugar, what about stevia? Otherwise, omit.

  106. Tahlor says

    This is a 10/10! We made it midday and let it cool, then heated it up for dinner. Flavors were incredible – thank you!

  107. Régine Bohar says

    Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe: easy, and totally satisfying! I had a guest for dinner who told me I was such a fabulous cook (ha! ha!)

  108. Christine says

    I’ve tried to make Thai curry so many times and never was it as amazing as this! Thank you!
    If you’re sensitive to sugar, you could probably put less and it would still be great. It took longer than 30 minutes for me but I’m a slow chopper..

  109. Hermione says

    I just made this, but realized far too late that I didn’t have curry paste on hand (and neither the ingredients to make it), so I subbed about 2 tbsp of garam masala and made basically a different curry dish — more like an Indian curry than a Thai curry, but still delicious. I have never considered roasting vegetables before adding them to a curry, and I love how the broccoli remained so bright and gave the curry a rich, almost charred flavor.

  110. Tina says

    THIS IS THE CURRY OF MY DREAMS.
    I made this tonight and I LOVE IT! It’s quick and easy to make, and really tasty. I simmered some extra firm tofu chunks in the sauce to add some protein to the dish, and it was amazing. I imagine this is a really versatile recipe that you can make with cashews, or chickpeas for protein. Thank you for this awesome recipe! I see a lot of this in my future. :-)

  111. Lily M Huber says

    Is the curry something I could make a large batch of and freeze, then just unthaw and add veggies (I don’t have a lot of time to cook on weekdays )?

  112. Natalia Czeremanska says

    I just made it for dinner and it was delicious! I used light coconut milk and served it with quinoa. Thank you for another amazing recipe :)

  113. Louis says

    Interesting recipe, I like it! Look at Chinese vegetarian recipes are also very interesting, I have been preparing them for some time and I’m happy!

  114. Kris Blankenship says

    I was prepping a pan of veggies to roast when this email hit my phone. Yep. Made it!! Awesome ? and doubled the red curry paste recipe so I can play with more stuff this week. Can I freeze the paste if I don’t use it quickly enough?

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerDana @ Minimalist Baker says

      awesome! And yes, you can freeze the paste in ice cube trays and store it in the freezer for months!

    • Em says

      Curry powder is a dried, powdered form of curry leaves. Curry paste is a blend of herbs, aromatics, and spices that have been combined into a delicious goop. Both yummy, but they work totally differently :)

      • annette wass says

        curry powder is usually a combination of dried spices such as cumin ,fenugreek, coriander ,cinnamon etc. the proportions can vary according to whether its medium or hot curry powder. Curry paste is more oily and usually contains fresh herbs and spices such as garlic ,ginger.

  115. Stephanie C says

    Hi Dana,

    I tried the Curry recipe and mine tastes way to salty .. I followed the recipe to a T except I only had enough lime juice for a few teaspoons .. how can I correct this to make it not salty? Was it possibly the coconut aminos?… But I used a tablespoon as directed?

    TIA for the help!

    -Stephanie

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerDana @ Minimalist Baker says

      Sorry about that! Perhaps scale back on the coconut aminos. Because this is a recipe with a lot of flavor, that’s why I went with the additional coconut aminos for depth. But omit it next time if you need!

    • Em says

      Almond milk and full fat coconut milk are really different. Full fat coconut comes in a can and parts of it have often solidified. You could probably use almond in a pinch, but the curry would be much less sweet and much less creamy. I would be interested to see how that would turn out!

    • Luciana says

      The end result won’t be the same. Coconut milk has a greater fat content that makes this curry unique and delicious. Almond milk will let you with a very watery and bland result. That’s my opinion based on experience using both milks.

      • LovelySerene says

        Another option for the coconut milk might be to mix equal parts of coconut water with culinary coconut milk. The proportion of each would allow for greater control over the consistency (higher ratio of culinary coconut milk would result in a thicker end product). Anyway, I love red curry :)

  116. BJ says

    Can you clarify if you are supposed to toss the sweet potatoes together with the other vegetables in the oil, maple syrup, curry, salt, and then pick the sweet potatoes out of that mix and bake them separately? That’s what it sounds like but I’m not clear if that’s what you meant. If so, it sounds like a lot of work. Thanks.
