Loaded Veggie Curry

Loaded yellow veggie curry

Quick and nutritious winter meals don’t have to be bland!

I love to throw a quick ‘Thai-inspired’ curry on the stove or in the crockpot on a Sunday so that we are sorted for most of the week. This is one such recipe!

Sometimes I make the curry-paste from scratch (and I’ll add in my recipe for this at some point). However, to save time, I often just use a good quality curry paste from the local Asian Fruit & Veggie market and add in a few extra spices I enjoy


  • 1 Tablespoon ghee (or coconut oil)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons yellow curry paste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 – 2 tsp of crushed lemon grass (if you have it)
  • Grated turmeric (or 1/2 tsp ground turmeric)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 dessertspoon soy sauce
  • 1 dessertspoon fish sauce (or more to taste)
  • 1 dessertspoon apple cider vinegar (or vinegar)
  • Salt

All your favourite non-starchy veggies. I like to use …

  • Cauliflower
  • Mushrooms
  • Eggplant
  • Cabbage
  • Okra
  • Courgettes
  • Carrot
  • Broccoli
  • Broad Beans


  • 300ml  – 500ml good quality coconut milk or cream (full fat)
  • Coriander


  • Put the ghee in a hot pan. Sauté the onion until translucent and soft.
  • Add the curry paste and spices and stir to stop from sticking.
  • Once the paste has darkened, add soy sauce, fish sauce and vinegar.
  • Chop vegetables to desired size and add to the pan stirring to coat in paste. Reduce heat slightly and allow to simmer.
  • Once vegetables are partially cooked, add the coconut cream and stir. Continue to cook on low heat (so as not to curdle the cream) until vegetables are cooked
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust to suit. This is when I add some extra chilli flakes if you want a bit more of a ‘kick’
  • You can add a bit of lemon juice for more tartness

Enjoy as is, for a low carb (but fully satiating meal!) or with some rice or rice noodles.  I like to serve it on a bed of freshly steamed peas and extra broccoli. Garnish with coriander!

Optional: Serve with a boiled egg or add chickpeas for some extra protein!

Also, for a few more carbs, throw in some sweet potato and pumpkin!
