Coconut Chia Oats with Caramelized Bananas.
Simple coconut quinoa and lentil curry with lime mango is just what I need today. It’s healthy, vegetarian and can easily be made vegan! Simple goes with Monday like french fries and ketchup, or cookies and milk.
They just work so well together, you know?
Curry on a cold, cold Monday? That is just the BEST. I don’t know about you guys, but here in Colorado we have had some seriously cold weather since before Christmas. I feel like I am pretty much shivering at all times. I will not lie, it’s a little miserable. My dad walked into my house on Saturday and I was sitting on the floor, wrapped tightly in a blanket, with a sweatshirt and hat on, and my computer on my lap.
He looked at me and said, “what the heck are you doing?”.
Me: “working and fighting to stay warm”.
Dad: “why are you using your laptop?”.
Me: “because it acts as a personal lap heater”.
Dad: “why are you on the floor?”.
Me: “because the floor is heated”.
Me: “please don’t open the door…like ever again”.
And that was our little Saturday conversation…clearly I am a weird one, but hey it is kind of cool that my floors are heated, right?!? Win, win!!
Speaking of Saturday things, and on a totally RANDOM note, I have cut back on my coffee consumption. I know, what? Didn’t I just say like last week that I loved coffee? I did, and I do, but I think it has been giving me headaches so I just kind of stopped drinking it last week. I am now on to a new drink, thanks to Caitlin, Kai’s girlfriend, and the one who informs me of all the things happening in the REAL world. Kombucha!!
Please tell me I have some fellow Kombucha lovers out there. I am not big on drinks, I pretty much stick to water, sparkling water and milk (preferably goats or coconut or almond!), but oh my gosh, I am addicted, Kombucha is so good and I am kind of pumped to hear it’s SO good for ME! Again, win, win!
OKAY. Randomness done for today. Let’s have a quick chat about this healthy, vegan curry. While, vegan minus the greek yogurt, but I love greek yogurt so you know I had to include it in my own personal bowl. I also HAD to include some mango, because I’ve become obsessed with tropical fruits during these cold winter days. Prepare yourselves, there are more to come!!
But the curry! It’s simple, quick and delicious… and full of muscle-building protein and fiber! Can you say win, win…again?? YUP! This dish is also full of good for us veggies like baby kale, red bell peppers and carrots! Not to mention a heavy dose of ginger, lemon AND lime. I mean, we might as well just call this superfood curry!
Oh, and then there is also naan…yummy, soft and buttery naan! No this not is not vegan, and no this naan really has very little health benefits, but yes, this naan is incredibly delicious and clearly I love it! Maybe a little too much, but then it’s naan. It kind of deserves a lot of love, you know? It’s also perfect for dipping and scooping this yummy curry.
Sooo, what do you say? Maybe a little superfood curry for dinner tonight? It will make you all warm inside and leave you feeling energized, and healthy too! Sorry, I don’t mean to sound like an ad, but all is true, and I really cannot tell you how much I love this recipe.
It’s the ultimate, quick and healthy meal for a cold winter night! Seriously.
Oh, and if you are looking for me, I’ll be hiding in the blankets with a giant bowl of curry and a piece of naan the size of my face.

i’ve always wanted to make curry and tried a few times and it wasn’t very good.
this was absolutely deliciious and super easy. i made the quinoa on the side and a few tbsp of corn starch to thicken the curry as it was watery. also cooked cauli, pot and sweet pot and added later. the curry was absolutely delicious! thank you!

This is a family favorite, we serve with naan and add some cauliflower. Nice to have a curry without an onion base as a change of pace!
Awesome!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a try! xTieghan
Have made this many times, love it. Picked up some thai basil along with more curry paste, do you think ti would work? other ideas for the thai basil? Thank you as always!!
Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad it was enjoyed. Sure, Thai basil would be great, I also use it in a bunch of other recipes:
Have the best week:) xTieghan
Could I add sweet potatoes to this, and if so, how would that effect the cooking time?
Love your curries ? Thanks!
For best results, I would cook the sweet potatoes on the side and then add them to the dish when serving. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
This is amazing!!! So much flavor and color and wow.
Fairly easy to make too. Is even made the naan. YUM

This very picky vegan loves this recipe! It comes together quickly and easily, with items usually already in my fridge and pantry. It’s so good, healthy and yummy, I’ll definitely be making it again. More, please!
That is so amazing to hear! Thank you for trying this Cynthia! xTieghan
Loved it! Used regular Kale and a mix of bell pepper colors. Perfect amount of heat for a chilly winter night. Heart and filling!
Thank you so much Elena! I am so glad you enjoyed this! xTieghan
The whole family loved it. Used spinach instead of kale and served it over rice. Thank you again for another great recipe!
That is so great! I am so glad you enjoyed this! xTieghan
This looks SO good but my husband can’t eat quinoa. Any substitute ideas?
Hey Jordyn! I would use an equal amount of white or brown rice. That will be so good! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you and happy holidays! xTieghan
