We know that after you’ve created your dream kitchen, you’ll want to use your shiny new hob and oven to create some delicious meals. So, why not try out some brand new recipes?

Here are some of the most delicious vegan curry recipes out there, suitable for all cooks whether you’re a beginner or a masterchef!

Vegan Chickpea Curry

Using the delicious and humble chickpea, this quick and easy curry takes just 25 minutes to make. Using healthy ingredients like coconut milk and easy to find store cupboard staples like tikka masala paste, this is a vegan curry that anyone can make. Find the full recipe here.

 

Tofu and Peanut Butter Curry

It’s creamy, it’s satisfying and it’s so easy! In fact, the only slightly difficult thing is pressing your tofu, which only consists of following the following steps:

  1. Unwrap your tofu
  2. Place it on a plate or board
  3. Place a plate or board on top of it
  4. Place cans or weights on the top plate or board until the tofu is gently “pressed”
  5. Leave for 30 mins to an hour
  6. Drain off excess water and use.

Easy!

This curry is a must, and works well as a comforting mid-week dinner, or as the ideal meal for a casual dinner party. Find the full recipe here.

Spinach, Sweet Potato and Lentil Dhal

One word describes this curry: scrumptious. Full of the fresh flavours of spinach and sweet potato, this low-fat, healthy curry is perfect as a low-calorie alternative. We think it’ll also turn a few carnivores into converts, too.

Using lentils makes this a really satisfying meal, with plenty of protein and fibre too. Find the full recipe over here.

Tomato and Chickpea Curry

This curry is perfect for those days when you can’t be bothered to head out to shops for extra ingredients. If you’ve got a tin of chickpeas, a tin of chopped tomatoes and a few spices in the cupboard, you can make this curry.

An extra tip is to keep jars of garlic and ginger paste in the fridge. That way you’ll have some ready for every curry craving, and they are especially useful in store cupboard recipes like this which are made to make the most of your tins and leftovers.

Now you have some inspiration, it’s time to cook. Get those pans out and make a delicious mess in your kitchen. After all, that’s what they’re for!
