Vegan Thai Coconut Curry Bowls

RECIPE BY Jenn Sebestyen, Kelli Foster and Joni Marie Newman
There are some recipes that will win you over with a medley of big, bold, savoury flavours and some that will do it purely on looks alone. This Thai-inspired vegie bowl does both. It’s worth noting that most, though not all, brands of red Thai curry paste contain shellfish. To ensure this bowl is vegan-friendly look for a curry paste that is shellfish free.
