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 cup vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cup cooked quinoa
  • to serve: 1 block of extra firm tofu, cubed

  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.

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!
