Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 600g/1lb 5oz carrots, thinly sliced
  • 400g/14oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, chopped into small medium-sized pieces
  • 150ml/5fl oz vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp shop-bought vegan yellow curry paste (some brands contain fish sauce but Thai Taste and some supermarket ranges are vegan)
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves
  • ½ tin coconut milk
  • Lime to finish

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the shallots and garlic. Fry until the shallots have softened.
  2. Add in the carrots, mushrooms and pepper and mix in well. Allow the veg to fry for a couple of minutes.
  3. Now add the stock, peanut butter and curry paste. Stir well, bring to boil, and then turn down to simmer for around 30 mins.
  4. Add in the coconut milk and lime leaves and warm through.
  5. Serve with lime juice squeezed over the top, with some of the rind grated over for decoration if you wish.

NB this is the sort of curry that will ‘age’ well and taste even better a few hours later or the day after! Serve with Thai rice.

Optional Toppings

  1. Fried red/green chilli, basil, corriander, soya yoghurt, edamame beans, red onion, quinoa crisps (instead of Thai crackers).

Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
