This is a great meal to add to your meatless repertoire. We like to eat our curry over some rice, or with a big pile of rice vermicelli, which is the fancy way of saying skinny rice noodles. We also dip naan occasionally as an extra special treat. This would be a fantastic dinner to share with friends, garnish with some fresh parsley to make it look extra fancy!
This meal is a real keeper. It's easy, it's delicious, it's healthy, it's quick, it's vegan.. the list goes on and on! I usually make up a big batch of this curry once a month or so and freeze the rest for another time. It reheats pretty well from frozen, the flavor is still delicious, the veggies just get a bit softer after freezing. You can always leave your veggies a bit firmer, and/or larger, to help alleviate this problem if you're planning on freezing it. You can also make a big batch of this and use it as a meal prep for the week!
I love dinners that can just be thrown together with things that I have in my fridge and a few pantry staples, and that's exactly what kind of a meal this curry is. I call them "fridge clean out meals" and I think they are fantastic to plan for the end of the week to use up the rest of my veggie scraps from the week. It not only creates something delicious and nourishing but also reduces food waste and saves money. Win-win-win!
In a large pan over medium, heat olive oil, then add onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring frequently until onion becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes
Add broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, pepper, carrots, chick peas and cook an additional 2-3 minutes
Stir in red curry paste, vegetable broth, coconut milk, salt and pepper, and bring to boil
Turn down heat, and allow to simmer, covered, 10-15 minutes, or until veggies are soft
In a separate bowl, mix together cornstarch and water, then add to simmering curry to thicken slightly
Right before serving, add spinach and stir until wilted, about 1-2 minutes
Serve with rice noodles, rice, naan, or enjoy as is!
