  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste*
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 small sweet potato diced
  • 1 small cauliflower cut in fleurets
  • 1 red bell pepper cut in large pieces
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes canned with the juice
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk 400ml
  • 1 can kidney beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter or more to taste
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro roughly chopped


  • Melt coconut oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add spices, mix well and cook for a minute or two.Add sweet potato and cauliflower and stir to coat them with the spice mix. Add tomatoes and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring once in a while.
  • Add bell pepper and beans. Let simmer for another 10-15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Add peanut butter, mix well and serve with fresh cilantro.



  • Most store-bought curry pastes are not vegan. Be sure to read the labels.
  • If using a very spicy Asian-store version, start with 1 teaspoon, taste and add the second one if not too spicy.
  • If you want something lighter, use half a can of full-fat coconut milk (200 ml) and 200 ml of vegetable broth. Don't use low-fat coconut milk, since it's simply the full-fat kind diluted in water.
