This vegan yellow curry recipe is hands down one of our family’s favorite meals. My wife makes it and has it all memorized now, BUT, the meal is so good that the kids told my wife she should open up her own restaurant called “Mommy’s Famous” and that this should be the featured dish. You can make it all in one skillet and your entire house will smell like curry heaven.

When it comes down to yellow vs red curry, I tend to find that my kids like the yellow a lot more. Oftentimes, red can seem a bit too spicy for them. With the yellow, we like to add some potatoes and broccoli for some added texture and nutrition. My favorite part about this recipe is the versatility when it comes to toppings. I use fresh pineapple, raisins, peanuts, and so much more to top mine. What’s your favorite curry topper? Put your mixture over a bed of brown rice so it can soap up all of the yellow curry soupy goodness and enjoy!
