Cashew Coconut Curry with Spiralized Vegetables

An easy coconut curry with spiralized vegetables and cashews that’s gluten free, vegan, and served over a fluffy bed of quinoa.

Cashew Coconut Curry with Spiralized Vegetables

Funny story. I made Luca (and me!) a tofu curry for lunch. I didn’t spiralize the bell peppers, because I wanted thicker pieces for him to grab on to. I added some leftover cooked zucchini slices and some green beans. Luca loved it (you can see him eating everyday here), and I decided to make another version, using spiralized veggies and some snow peas I had from the farmer’s market.

I made the curry, photographed it, and ate it. As I was on one of my final bites (so good!), I noticed it: I forgot the tofu!

SO. Today’s curry recipe was meant to be with curry (and I recommend you adding tofu to it- it needs a little extra something), but when I asked you guys on Instagram if you cared, the resounding answer was: no. Done is better than perfect has been my life motto (I’m not a perfectionist by any means),

Long story short, this cashew coconut curry was supposed to be a Tofu Cashew Coconut Curry, but now it’s a choose-your-own-adventure kind of recipe. You can stir in your protein of choice at the end – chicken, tofu, pork, shrimp, whatever!

The flavor here is on point – it’s a medium level spice, it simmers until slightly thick so that it serves well with a bed of quinoa or brown rice to absorb the flavor. Packed with vegetables and crunchy cashews, it’s a curry you’ll want to have in your recipe collection forever!

You can also switch up the vegetables – like I said, I made it for Luca with green beans, but then with snow peas for me! Have fun with food!

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 red bell peppers, Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1/2 medium white onion, Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 6oz snow peas
  • 2 heaping tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (15oz) can lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cup cooked quinoa
  • to serve: 1 block of extra firm tofu, cubed
  • to garnish: cilantro

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Once oil melts, add garlic and ginger and stir for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the bell peppers, onions, snap peas, and stir well. Let cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables begin to turn tender. Season with curry powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add the coconut milk and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender and curry thickens.
  2. Meanwhile, coarsely chop the cashews and stir half into the simmering curry. Save the other half to garnish.
  3. Once the curry is done, stir in tofu, if desired (that was my original plan, but I forgot to!)

Hi, I'm busy whipping this up and just noticed that the recipe states that it serves 4, but to divide the recipe into two bowls at the end. Based on the size I'm guessing the 4 servings is correct, but could you please confirm? Thanks! Your recipes are the BEST!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
