Quick Veggie Curry Bowl

by Caren McSherry
As fresh vegetables prices soar out of control stay calm, here is recipe relief. Try adding grilled protein or crispy tofu to build the bowl.


  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil (for the curry sauce)
  • 50 grams curry paste, there are many, I like “Asian Home Gourmet Brand”
  • 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 large shallot diced fine
  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil (for cooking the vegetables)
  •  large bag mixed frozen vegetables
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups cooked basmati or jasmine rice
  • 1/3 cup toasted white sesame seeds for garnish
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, leaves only for garnish


1. Heat the oil in a 1 quart sauce pan, add the curry paste , turn the heat to low and let it sizzle until fragrant.
2. Add in the coconut milk and whisk until smooth and slightly thick, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
3. Heat a wok to high, add the oil and shallot, quickly stir fry and toss in the frozen vegetables continually tossing to heat through, add the parsley. Do not overcook.
4. Ladle the rice into 4 bowls, heap the vegetables on top and spoon the curry sauce around the edge. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over along with the fresh cilantro leaves.

Serves 4
