This All-Veggie Curry Is So Flavorful, We Promise You Won’t Miss The Meat

Yellow Vegetable Curry

Serves 6 to 8


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 red chili (optional)
  • 2 to 3 cans coconut milk
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup green beans, cut 2 inches
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets 
  • 1 eggplant, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • cilantro, garnish 


1. Heat a large saucepan to medium heat and add olive oil. Add the garlic, onion, ginger, carrots, and potatoes. Cook until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Add curry powder, coriander, cumin, kaffir leaves, red chili (optional), coconut milk, salt and pepper to taste.

3. Add green beans, reduce heat and continue cooking for 4 to 7 minutes.

4. Then add red bell pepper, broccoli, eggplant, and tomatoes. Adjust salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Do not overcook the vegetables.



To avoid a soggy veggie stew, blanch the vegetables first by briefly boiling them, then plunging them in ice water to stop the cooking. Blanching ensures the vegetables stay bright and tender crisp.
