Vegan Thai Red Curry Recipe

Vegan Thai Red Curry

If you’re looking for hearty lunch/dinner ideas packed with veggies, this delicious Thai Red Curry is for you! Serve it alongside basmati rice and I’m sure you’ll want to make it again. 🙂

I first wanted to make my own red paste but couldn’t find all the necessary ingredients – so I ended up buying a small tub of it instead. 😅

You can easily find it in your local Asian groceries – just make sure it’s vegan.

Let’s go!
