Vegan yellow curry MAIN

Vegan yellow curry recipe for the weekend

Vibrant and bright but most importantly – tasty. Made with potatoes and lots of other delicious and filling veggies, this flavoursome curry is sure to satisfy your hunger. Part of our recipe special for National Vegetarian Week

Coconut milk is an essential curry ingredient. Despite coconut milk tasting like it should be bad for you with its rich and creamy flavours, it actually provides us with many nutrients that are beneficial to our health. It contains a valuable fat called lauric acid that is easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. Coconut milk has been said to help lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure, and prevent heart attacks and strokes.

This magical liquid is also completely free from dairy, lactose, soy, nuts and grains. This makes it a perfect option for anyone with an intolerance to dairy, nut or grain based milks. It’s also vegan and great for plant-based eaters. So with that intriguing info in mind, why not try Healthista’s vegan yellow curry…
