Eating a plant-based diet isn’t for everyone, but for me – I love it! So in our home, I’m vegan and everyone else…is not. So when putting together a healthy dinner, if I dare hope to serve up a vegan dish – it better be good enough to get away with the lack of meat and dairy.

Somewhere along the way, while opting for a more high-fat, low-carb way of living while still being vegan, this recipe came to be. Since then, it’s been my go-to. There’s no prep time needed to chop anything, it’s so simple you just toss everything into the pot and let it cook on the stovetop in no time.

It’s chunky like a stew, with a creamy coconut milk base, and just a hint of spice that will keep that warmth going through your whole body as you enjoy it. While we used a Vindaloo curry paste in this (slightly spicy), you can easily swap that out for a mild Indian curry paste as well to suit your own tastes.

In our home, this is our comfort food. To be completely honest, I make it about once a week and we’ve not gotten sick of it yet! That’s rare. 

If you’re a low-carb dieter (or full-blown ketogenic dieter) this recipe is one that will keep you satisfied while keeping the carbs low, sugar out of it, and complete with healthy fats to keep you sustained.
