Vegan Curry Sauce

Quick, simple and super delicious; this vegan curry sauce is made using things you likely have in your kitchen or can easily buy. It’s so versatile it can be added to pan-fried tofu, roasted vegetables, fully cooked meat or fish. Why not make it today for a special curry night at home?

  1. I love curry! And I love this recipe because it is SO much simpler than other curry recipes I’ve seen online. I’ve brought home all sorts of fish sauces and random spices only to find I couldn’t replicate the flavor and have them expire before I could use all of them up. This looks so much easier! Pinned for later!


  2. I’ll pass this recipe on to my oldest son. He’s been a vegan for 3 years. So happy to have discovered your blog! Seems we have a lot in common. I’m originally from Ohio, lived in London as a student, and moved to Ireland many years ago.
