Vegan Curry Recipes

Vegetarian and vegetable curries from around the globe


A collection of vegetarian and vegetable curry recipes from around the world including Thai vegan curries, Indian curry and some non-traditional vegan curry recipes. Curries can be eaten plain, though they are usually served with rice. For a nutritional boost, pair your homemade curry with a healthy whole grain such as quinoa, millet or even brown rice instead of white.

1. Massaman Curry with Potatoes and Peanuts

With Indian origins, Chinese five-spice powder, and popular amongst Muslim communities in Southern Thailand, massaman curry is a truly global dish. This version is a simplified version of the traditionally complex curry, but still has a distinct kick. Traditiaional Massaman curry ingredients are chicken and potatoes, which is why this vegetarian version uses seitan, but if you want to add veggies, I'd recommend baby corn or green peas.

2. Yellow Thai Vegetable Curry

Make an easy homemade yellow Thai vegan curry with coconut milk, curry powder, turmeric and ginger. Two users have given this yellow vegetable curry recipe an average of 4.5 out of five stars, and both of them absolutely loved it. Though this recipe calls for potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower, just about any type of vegetable could easily be substituted, as is the case with most vegetable curry recipes.

3. Vegetarian Green Thai Curry

The vegetable curries of Thailand have such a unique taste due that once you try one, you'll surely remember it a long time. It's the blend of several spices that goes into a curry paste that lends each curry, whether green, yellow or red, their burst of memorable flavor. This recipe uses a store-bought green curry paste, chopped vegetarian chicken substitute (though you could use tofu, seitan or just more vegetables if you don't like or can't find mock meat) and is topped of with fresh cilantro for a final layer of flavor.

4. Japanese Curry

No collection of curry recipes would be complete without the addition of at least one Japanese-style curry. This recipe is for a Japanese eggplant curry, though you could also try adding a bit of seitan as a meat substitute or try adding some Japanese udon noodles for a full meal. This Japanese curry recipe and photo comes from Setsuko, About.com's fantastic guide to Japanese food.

5. Coconut Curried Vegetables

A variety of veggies are simmered in a quick homemade green chili paste and a variety of spices, including cumin and curry. This is a less saucy curry heavy on the vegetables, so it would be appropriate as either a side dish or an entree. If you're the type of person who usually doesn't like to eat your veggies, this recipe just might change your mind about that. Delish!

6. Easy Red Thai Curry with Vegetables and Tofu

Use a store-bought red Thai curry paste to make this simple yet delicious red Thai coconut curry with tofu, carrots and spicy Thai chilies. Or, if you like Thai red curries, here's another red curry to try, with fresh chopped basil and baby corn.

7. Simple Crockpot Curried Veggies

Add some veggies, spices, curry powder and a bit of water to your crockpot or slow cooker, turn it on and viola! You've got a simple Indian-style curried veggie side dish a few hours later. If you like Indian-style curried veggies, you might also want to try this Indian curried chickpeas recipe.
