Vegan curry recipes
1. Slow cooker turmeric and coconut dhal
Dhal recipes are ideal when you’re looking for a delicious plant-based meal that’s also a good source of protein. As well as lentils and split peas, this one uses quinoa and is easy to make in your slow cooker. Boost the coconut flavour with a sprinkle of coconut flakes.
2. Tofu green curry with coconut flakes
Thai green curry is an all-round favourite and this one is meat-free with pan-fried tofu and plenty of green veggies. Served with speedy microwavable rice to soak up the creamy sauce, it’s on the table in 30 minutes. Not all Thai-style curry pastes are vegan, so always check the label.
3. Slow cooker cauliflower with lentil and chilli dhal
With a whole cauliflower on Indian curry lentils, this plant-based slow cooker recipe couldn’t be easier to make. Unlike meat-based slow cooker recipes that start with frying on the stovetop, for this one you just throw everything into the slow cooker then set and forget until it’s ready to serve.
4. Vegetarian tikka masala
Here’s an easy vegan recipe to try if you’re after an Indian curry with lots of vegetables. It has fresh pumpkin and cauliflower and canned tomatoes, plus coconut milk and tikka curry paste. Cooked in one pan, it’s ready in 35 minutes. Finish fresh mint and serve with fluffy rice.
5. Chickpea, carrot and lemon curry

Made with quick-cooking red lentils and rich tikka masala curry paste, it’s bursting with crisp green beans and smoky golden roast cauliflower.
