Vegan-friendly Pumpkin Curry is hearty, warming, and full of flavor! This delicious curry recipe is packed with nourishing ingredients, like pumpkin, cauliflower, and carrots, plus it’s really simple to make and can be on the table in less than 30 minutes!

Comforting and filled with fall flavors, this creamy pumpkin curry is as healthy as it is delicious. It’s so tasty and easy to make that it’s become a weekday staple in my house. It has minimal ingredients, and is a great way to get in some extra veggie goodness. Add a side of steamed rice and you’ll have an easy dinner that everyone will love.

Why you should make this recipe

  • Warm and comforting. Loaded with hearty veggies in a flavorful sauce, this dish is warm, cozy and super satisfying.
  • Nutritious. Made with coconut milk and packed with vegetables, pumpkin curry is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, and each serving is less than 200 calories.
  • So easy. Simple to prep, then toss the ingredients together in a skillet and sauté until everything is warm and tender. Other than chopping some veggies, this meal is effortless!

Ingredients needed

  • Flavor makers. The key to this delicious curry recipe is the curry seasoning. You’ll need garlic, curry powder, salt & pepper.
  • Vegetables. This meal is packed with wholesome veggies like pumpkin, cauliflower, and carrots.
  • For the sauce. You’ll simmer all of the veggies and spices in coconut milk, veggie broth, almond butter, and soy sauce.
  • Serve it up. This is great served over a starch to soak up all of that tasty curry sauce. Pair it with basmati rice, quinoa or even cauliflower rice for a low carb option.

How to make this recipe

This curry recipe couldn’t be easier! Here’s the simple steps:

See the recipe card for the full, printable recipe.

  1. Sauté the veggies. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the coconut oil and add in the minced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. Add in the pumpkin, cauliflower, and carrots and sauté for 5 minutes as the veggies begin to soften a bit. Stir in the curry powder and cook for an additional minute.
  2. Make the sauce. Mix in the coconut milk, broth, almond butter, soy sauce, salt, and pepper and cook for 10 additional minutes as the veggies continue to cook. Once veggies are soft and the pumpkin and cauliflower are easily pierced with a fork, remove from the heat.
  3. Serve & enjoy. Serve on its own or over basmati rice and enjoy!

Customize this recipe

This pumpkin curry recipe is super easy to customize with ingredients you have on-hand! Here are suggestions and swaps I can recommend:

  • Different veggies. If you don’t have pumpkin on hand, this recipe works great with cubed sweet potato or butternut squash instead. You could also add in extra veggies – zucchini, tomatoes, yellow squash, bell pepper, broccoli and/or mushrooms would all be delicious options.
  • Add in protein. If you want to boost the protein in this dish, try adding tofu or chickpeas, and if you’re not following a plant-based diet, feel free to try chicken or shrimp!
  • Spicy. If you want to kick up the heat, mix in some sriracha, red chili paste, a dash of cayenne pepper or hot sauce.

Serving suggestions

We love to serve this with steamed white rice. However, there are plenty of other options such as brown rice, rice noodles, coconut rice or quinoa that would pair wonderfully with this pumpkin curry recipe.

Storage recommendations

  • Storing leftovers. Place leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Reheat. Simply reheat the curry in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.
  • To freeze. Let the curry cool completely before transferring to a freezer safe bag or container. Freeze for up to 2 months. I would not recommend freezing the curry with rice.
  • Reheating from frozen. Thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave for 2 minutes, or until heated through.
