This Vegan Thai Red Curry is a fantastic Holiday Dinner Idea. You can also make the whole thing ahead of time. That’s the best part!
I also think the colors are so beautiful for fall and look extra festive in this stunning pumpkin tureen (source below).
It’s a great idea for a main course because it’s packed with vegetables and becomes really filling when served over brown rice or quinoa.
What vegetables go well with Thai red curry?
I think vegetables that have a combination of starchiness and texture go great with Thai red curry. For me I love to add a combination of sweet potatoes and kale, for a fall twist, and a few garbanzo beans and cauliflower for some additional protein and texture.
Can you make vegan Thai red curry ahead of time?
Yes! That’s the other nice thing about this recipe. The whole thing could be made the day before and just reheated and served the day of Thanksgiving. How’s that for easy! I might just add the kale the day of to prevent it from getting too wilted. Serve your Vegetarian Thai Red Curry over rice et voila, dinner done!
Looking for another Vegan Thanksgiving entree? Might I suggest my Gardener’s Pie or my Vegan Quinoa Cakes with Corn Puree and Roasted Tomatoes!
