Curry Better Than Takeout

If you’re like me, you order food delivery way more often than you’d like to admit. There’s just something so comforting about lazing around the house with a plate full of food you didn’t have to cook. But as we all know, having a take-out weakness is no good for the bank account.

This vegan Thai red curry is absolutely delicious, and way better piping hot from your stove than cooked hours ago and transported who knows how far in a styrofoam container. Plus, it’s ridiculously easy to make – perfect for recreating every time the craving hits.

If you’re looking for a little more weight to this dish, feel free to add a protein like tofu or chicken.
