Saved by the Bell Pepper Curry

I have about five trillion (rough estimate) posts that need to happen stat, but I’m a lazy chick. What can I say? What I can say is:

Here’s a recipe for some curry when you’ve got a veggie drawer full of items threatening impending squishiness and imminent doom. Thus, “Saved by the Bell Pepper” Curry is born. Have a heart guys. Save your miscellanious veggies from the compost.




1 can of coconut milk ( I use light coconut milk because that’s how I roll)

2 T yellow curry paste

1 T soy sauce

2 T brown sugar

1/3 C veggie broth

Use whichever veggies you have laying around but I used:

1 red bell pepper

1 Japanese eggplant

1/4 cup bamboo shoots

1/4 cup shiitake mushrooms

1 cup kale

4 oz. tofu cut into cubes

1/4 cup basil


  • In a large saucepan, simmer the coconut milk with yellow curry paste over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, brown sugar, eggplant, bell pepper, bamboo shoots and mushrooms and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add kale and tofu and simmer 5 more minutes.
  • Finally, stir in the basil until wilted.

It’s that easy and I’m obsessed.
