Vegetarian Crock Pot Red Curry

Hello everyone!

It’s been a hectic few days in my little world… so I decided to pull out my trusty ole Crock Pot for a meal this week.  I love getting dinner ready early in the day, knowing I’ll have a healthy meal ready in the evening with little to no stress.

Since the weather is slowly warming, I wanted to make a vegetarian crock pot recipe that isn’t soup.  I came up with this delicious Vegetarian Crock Pot Red Curry recipe… complete with sweet potatoes, mushrooms and kale.  It has all your favorite takeout flavors, but in a much healthier package.

This Vegetarian Crock Pot Red Curry recipe is also vegan and dairy free!

Takeout is great, but you often don’t know what’s actually in the food.  Making it at home can give you more nutrients and you know what’s in your dinner.

This takeout at home meal is delish!  The sweet potatoes give the dish body and substance, making it filling with healthy carbs.  The mushrooms might not be traditional, but they really taste delicious and our family is huge mushroom fans.  I stirred in some kale at the end of the cooking to really brighten up the dish and add oodles of nutritional value.  It’s a unique, but delightful combination.

The real flavor comes in with the coconut milk you stir in at the end. 🙂

This dish cooks up in about four hours on low, so you can make it at lunch time and have it be ready in just a few hours.

I served the Vegetarian Crock Pot Red Curry recipe on top of some brown rice I made in my rice cooker and garnished with fresh cilantro and a few peanuts.  It would also be delicious on quinoa flavored with lime!

This dinner comes together with little effort and is totally unique, filling, healthy and comforting.  I hope you’ll give it a try!

    I love a good curry, never thought of making it vegetarian but you gave me an idea, sriracha is definitely a go to in my household!

    Yum! I’m obsessed with curries lately. I love how you added sriracha! I’ve been putting that on everything lately. Great idea to make it in a crockpot. I have one but have never used it before. You’ve inspired me to try it. 🙂

    I love the idea of a hearty vegetarian crock pot dinner- plus curry- love! My favorite crock-pot recipe is just a whole chicken in the crock pot- I get all the broth it creates, and then I get the meat to use for lots of different make ahead recipes.

    Yum I love curry! It’s one of my favorite dishes to make at home. Mushrooms are my favorite veggie in curry!

    This looks amazing!
    I seriously wished my food looked that good after I made it. If it did, I’d definitely become a food blogger as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have your talent for picture food taking!

      haha! It has been a work in progress. Look at some of my early food posts 🙂 Trial and error… lots of error…

    I actually just made a sweet potato curry in my crockpot last week (and the week before!!), but I didn’t use stiracha! That’s s great idea!

    You had me at sriracha. This sounds soooo perfect for rainy Tuesday dinner! Don’t be mad if I add chicken, but this is happening! 😉 Have you ever seen the multi-pot or an electric pressure cooker? We got one as a wedding gift and I hardly ever drag out my crock pot anymore, it’s literally a fast slow-cooker, or the best small appliance ever! You could even put your brown rice in WITH this and it’d all cook perfectly. It’s my favorite, look it up and thank me later. 🙂 AND…C’mon SPRING!

    • JulieWunder February 6, 2016 at 10:51 am - Reply

      haha! Not mad at all 🙂 Let me know how it turns out.
      I’ve never seen one of those before. Sounds fascinating!! And I’m such a small appliance hoarder 🙂 Looking it up now.
