Vegan Massaman Curry – 1 Pot 30 Mins

Sponsored post from Le Creuset

Vegan Massaman Curry and all you need is one pot and 30 minutes. Sounds good right? This dish has become one of my go-to curry’s. I love it when a dinner dish is pretty much one size fits all. This massaman curry is vegan and gluten-free. I hope you like it as much as I do.

This recipe is inspired by the lovely ladies at Cashew Vegan Kitchen, or rather their cookbook. If you have the chance to go to their restaurant, you should. It’s such a delicious treat.

Now back to the Massaman curry. I have a big family and thus I have a huge cast iron pot from Le Creuset. It comes in handy for family gatherings and having friends over for dinner. So much so that has its very own permanent spot on the stove. 

How to make it 

The easiest way to make this is to make the base first. Have all the veggies peeled and cut and then just add them as you need them. Start with the ones that will take the longest time to cook. In this order, potatoes, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, chilli and bell pepper. Start with the base and make the sauce. If you have time you can make it a little slower, to extract all the flavours properly. 

Eating your greens

We are definitely seeing a huge trend in eating less meat and eating more massaman curry. No, but eating more vegetarian food. I know from experience it’s not that easy. But I’m happy to help you along the way. I have a bunch of vegetarian recipes on my blog and if you follow my Instagram, you can follow my journey on the quest for a meatless life.
