Vegan Thai Massaman Curry
Mmmmmmm Massaman. I discovered Massaman Curry about a year ago in a local restaurant. It is typically made with chicken but at this restaurant you could have it vegetarian and even add tofu. Whenever I would have a hankering for a warm, rich, comforting meal I would convince my hubby that we needed to go to get some Massaman. He rarely objected. I would thoroughly enjoy the dish while I was eating it but soon afterward I would crash and my stomach wouldn’t feel very good. I attributed this to its high oil and sugar content and decided that I needed desperately to make this on my own. Life without Massaman is just no fun.

could you add a “roughly serves 4” or whatever to some of your recipes? the amounts in here seem a lot for say 2 people so I don’t know If I should half them or not, hmm maybe I could freeze whats left 🙂
I love your recipes and videos. I am working my way through all of them. Not one I haven’t liked yet. I’m already vegan so making the change to no salt/no oil has not been a problem. I feel better and have lost some weight too. I’m wondering where you get tamarind paste? Also I have a lemon grass plant. How much fresh would I use instead of the dry? Have you considered Pinterest? Another social outlet to get your recipes, videos and message to people. Keep up the great work you are doing!
I would use about 3 tablespoons of fresh lemongrass. I get my tamarind paste from Hmart which is an Asian grocery.
Currently I use YouTube, Facebook and twitter and then this Wordpress sight. There are links for them on the website.
Good luck on your journey🤗
I’m gathering all the nesessary ingredients for this soup. I was wondering weather I can use lemongrass powder or is it better to buy dried lemongrass and ground it?
The powder will work just fine =)
Have you ever tried making this with almond butter? I don’t eat peanuts and was wondering if it would drastically change the flavor if I substituted almond butter.
I think it would work just fine. It is really just to add a rich creaminess 🤗
Love❤️❤️❤️, all your recipe’s please keep them coming. I’m so new to WFPB and loving it. I’ve been Obsessed , High Blood Pressure, & no longer . This is what I am and who I am. Do you have a Cookbook out yet? Keep up the good work.

Hello Esperansa, I don’t have a cookbook yet but hopefully in the future =)
How would you go about including the tofu?
I would add it when the vegetables go in.
I first ate Massaman in Thailand in 1972 and I was hooked. They used beef in it then and whole peanuts. I sometimes add roasted peanuts to give it a little crunch. I tried this and it was good but I cheated and used MASSAMAN curry paste from a can. The broccoli was a new thing for me.
Made this today and it was delicious! I did cut the recipe in half and have plenty of leftovers, after a large helping. I found the tamarind paste at Whole Foods, as well as a lemongrass turmeric paste there also. Your recipes are amazing! Thank you so much.
Hi Jill, I buy lemon grass paste in the refrigerated section at Publics. its delicious and easy. Its called Gourmet Garden 4 oz. Lemongrass stir-in paste
I’m allergic to coconut. Will the flavor change a lot if I leave out the coconut milk sub with a plant based milk?
It will change the flavor but I think it will still be delicious.
