Amazing Vegan Curry Recipes

Do you love curries as much as I do? Especially in the colder months, there is nothing better than a bowl of hot, pure comfort food.

Vegan, plant-based curries are by no means boring – they are flavorful and there are so many different kinds. Some of the curries in this post are with chickpeas, lentils, beans, veggies, tofu, … even jackfruit!

In this article, I’ve compiled 15 of the Best Vegan Curry Recipes, featuring awesome recipes from my food blogger friends.

For easier browsing, I’ve categorized the curries into:

  • curries with tofu, tempeh, soy curls
  • curries with lentils, beans, chickpeas
  • curries with jackfruit, banana blossoms
  • curries with veggies, potatoes

Whether you’re looking for a vegetable curry for a crowd or you’re cooking for one – I’m sure you’ll love these easy vegan curry recipes. I’ve made the Palak Tofu and Falafel Curry for my parents and they all loved it. But who doesn’t love curries?!

And if you’re still looking for a great flatbread recipe, make sure you check out my Spelt Chapati or 4-ingredient yeast-free & oil-free Sesame Naan. Every curry needs its naan! :)

Best Vegan Curry Recipes

Curries with tofu, tempeh, soy curls

Vegan Palak Tofu Paneer with basmati rice and naan
Palak Tofu – Vegan version of the Indian spinach curry, Palak Paneer. We’re using tofu instead of the typical Indian cheese ‘paneer’.
Tofu Cashew Curry
Tofu Cashew Curry – We are using cashews for the base of the creamy sauce and adding lots of broccoli, tofu, and carrots.
Vegan Butter Chicken with Soy Curls served with basmati rice and naan
Butter Chicken with Soy Curls – In many vegan versions of Butter Chicken, people are using chickpeas or tofu, but I’m using soy curls, which have THE perfect texture!
Vegan Coconut Curry with Crispy Tofu
Coconut Curry with Crispy Tofu – This curry with crispy tofu, sweet potato, and broccoli is quick and easy to make, filling, and the ideal weekday meal.
Vegan Tempeh Curry
Vegan Tempeh Curry – This curry is made with delicious tempeh chunks in a creamy tomato cashew sauce.

Lentil & Vegetable Curry by hot for food
Vegan Dal Makhani
Vegan Dal Makhani – In a traditional Dal Makhani, you’ll find black lentils (urad beans) and kidney beans but I used some canned brown lentils because they are more easily available and it is way faster to cook that way.
15-Minute Chickpea Curry Vegan
15-Minute Vegan Chickpea Curry – You need chickpeas, tomato purée, coconut milk, and spices. That’s it!
Vegan Falafel Curry
Falafel Curry – We all love falafel and we all love curries, so why not combine them?! This vegan Falafel Curry is a creamy dream come true!

Curries with jackfruit, banana blossoms

Vegan Fish Curry made with Banana Blossoms
Vegan Fish Curry – Using banana blossoms as a vegan fish substitute is mind-blowing! The ‘fish’ is crispy on the outside and soft and flaky on the inside.

Sweet Potato Curry – The combination of sweet potato and broccoli in curries is one of my favorites!
