I like to think of myself as the queen of healthy but simple and easy plant-based weeknight meals. I’ve shared with you all before that I do not believe weeknight dinners should be time consuming or complicated at all. But I do believe they can still be delicious and wonderfully flavorful. This Vegan Thai Green Curry recipe fits the bill perfectly. It takes less than 20 minutes to make from start to finish and curry is a dish that explodes with flavor, in my opinion. It’s easy peasy but you get a lot of bang for your buck in the flavor department.
I used veggies I had on hand for this Vegan Thai Green Curry recipe, but feel free to change it up as you’d like. Don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen and make substitutions to recipes if your family prefers certain veggies over others. For instance, cauliflower, zucchini, green beans or snap peas would all work wonderfully in this dish. You’ll build your cooking repertoire and become more confident in the kitchen by playing with substitutions, so it’s important to practice this skill 🙂
FYI: I love using my Instant Pot to make rice and quinoa. It’s so much faster than cooking them on the stovetop. My rice cooked in 10 minutes in my Instant Pot while I was making this curry and I didn’t have to tend to it at all.
