Are you ready to celebrate the harvest season?

We’ve got a curry recipe to share that  pairs perfectly with any of your favorite vegetables – zucchini, mushrooms, eggplant, tomatoes, and more, oh my! This curry allows you to incorporate as many vegetables as you want, and can be altered to how spicy you like it (I like it spicy!).

It’s also so easy! You can prepare the curry paste on the day of, or beforehand to save some time. Make a big batch to freeze and you can easily prepare the rest of the curry any time you like!

A Thai-style curry paste

The flavors of the garlic, chili peppers, shallot, coriander, cumin, ginger and honey add depth and a much different flavor profile than a traditional Indian style curry powder. The contrasting flavors of sweet, sour and spicy are characteristics of Thai cuisine.

Don’t take my word for it, send your taste buds on this flavorful journey!

Harvest Season Coconut Curry

There is nothing like homemade curry paste! The paste will make extra, so I I like to freeze it in ice cubes for easy weeknight dinners for the future. This recipe celebrates the harvest season, so feel free to use whatever seasonal veggies you find!
