When it’s cold outside, nothing beats the autumn chill better than a bowl of curry. If you’re a slimmer following a vegan diet – or someone who’d just like to try a veg-packed spicy sensation – we’ve got a vibrant vegan curry recipe for you. And this satisfying mix of sweet potato, spinach and warming spices is ready in just 35 minutes, making it a perfect plant-based dinner for busy weeknights.
What I love about this vegan curry recipe is its versatility. You can play around with different vegetables and spices to work with whatever you’ve got in your kitchen, or switch things up by adding tofu or chickpeas for added filling power. Plus, because this vegan curry uses only fresh veggies and store cupboard staples, it’s brilliantly budget-friendly – and you can make the meal stretch even further by reheating any leftovers for lunch the next day.
If you’re looking to lose weight while following a plant-based diet – or just looking to eat less meat, dairy and eggs – you’ll find plenty of meal ideas over on the Slimming World member website, including a seven-day vegan menu to help you get started.
Now it’s time to satisfy those curry cravings. It takes only 35 minutes to cook up this vegan curry – and then you’ll be tucking into a fantastically filling fakeaway, without your weight loss plans getting curried away.
