Simple Coconut Quinoa Curry Recipe

vegan curry recipe

This vegan curry recipe is one of my absolute FAVES!! Yes, it's vegan, but it's also omnivore boyfriend approved! ;)

If you have about 30 minutes to prepare a dish with simple items you can pick up from most grocery stores, this is a delish recipe to make for your fam, or meal prep for the week!

Shall we begin?

vegan meal prep

What you Need:

-1 cup uncooked quinoa
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-1 small white onion, diced
-2 cloves minced garlic (or more, go crazy!)
-3/4 cup broccoli, chopped 
-1 red bell pepper, chopped
-1 can chickpeas, drained
-1/2 cup diced carrots
-1/4 cup diced tomato
-1/3 cup chopped snow peas (in half)
-1 tbsp curry powder
-cayenne pepper (to taste...or lots of it!)
-1 can light coconut milk (8 oz)
-1 cup veggie broth

Step 1: Begin by cooking the quinoa--make more if you like to have quinoa in bulk for the week (like I do!). Set aside.

Step 2: Chop all the veggies, and get creative! You can definitely improvise and add more veggies if you'd like. This can be a great recipe to make when you have a ton of leftover veggies to use up! :)

Step 3: In a large frying pan or sauce pan, use medium heat and add 1 tbsp coconut oil. Add the onion, garlic, carrot, broccoli, and a pinch of sea salt. Cook and stir until veggies soften (about 5-7 min).

Step 4: Add the curry powder, cayenne, veggie broth, and coconut milk. Stir. Then add in washed chickpeas, and if you happen to have leftover sweet potatoes, add those too! ;)
Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat slightly, stirring randomly for about 10 minutes.

Step 5: Add in the snow peas and tomatoes, stir for about 5 minutes (you don't want them to overcook). I added a bit more sea salt, and some hot sauce for a kick!
