Servings: 3 – 4
Time: 40 minutes

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 sweet onion, sliced
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons Thai red curry paste (like Thai Kitchen)
  • 1 can full-fat, premium coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons tamari/soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 5 – 8 mushrooms, sliced
  • thumb-size piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges (garnish)
  • 1 bunch of Thai basil, shredded (garnish)

In a large saucepan, add coconut oil and lightly sauté garlic and onions for about 5 minutes.

Add curry paste and stir. Pour in coconut milk, water, soy sauce and coconut palm sugar – stirring to combine, then bring to a gentle boil.

Toss in the fresh vegetables and ginger, reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender.

Serve with rice or quinoa, if desired. Garnish with Thai basil and lime wedges. Eat and enjoy!

    Hello Jennifer,
    Thank you for sharing this simple yet succulent recipe. I made this on a weeknight.. it was easy to put together n tasted restaurant-quality! The only modification I made was to saute the vegs prior to adding them to the coconut milk.

    So glad you liked it, Nilu! It’s one my favourites. :D
