Creamy Vegetable Thai Red Coconut Curry with Sweet Potato Noodles

Full disclosure: I had to go out of my comfort zone for this recipe. Luckily, it was totally worth it- I slurped up two bowls of this immediately after finishing snapping some glamour shots.

It’s easier for me to develop recipes based off of Italian classics or American favorites, because that’s my jam. My palate is familiar with those smells, tastes and sights. It’s tougher for me to do recipes like curries, because I have little experience with those types of dishes.

But you know what? I said “There’s no better time than the present!” and I researched a bit about curries and built my own lip-smackin’ good recipe for this vegetarian-friendly red coconut curry, using sweet potato noodles.

In retrospect, I feel so silly – this was easier to throw together than most recipes I’ve ever made! You just cook up some veggies with red curry paste and then drop in the coconut milk, simmer and voila – a luxuriously smooth curry with a beautiful coconut fragrance.

Plus, the sweet potato noodles are the perfect noodle consistency for a curry and they absorb the creaminess of the curry very well. The soft, silky feels in this bowl of noodles compliments the crunchiness of the veggies fantastically. I wish I had a Thesaurus for food descriptors, because I just can’t list enough: delicious, yummy, delightful, exquisite, full-flavored and mouth-watering.

I’ll have to add a Food Writing book to my Amazon Prime account.

Life lesson of today’s post: don’t be afraid of the unknown- embrace it with excitement, not fear! I’m so happy I stopped avoiding making a curry and took the plunge – there are such simple ingredients, yet massive flavor benefits!

To get the recipe, you’ll have to head over to the Williams Sonoma blog, where I’m a featured blogger! Read a Q&A on me also, where I answer questions about how I started spiralizing, my favorite things to spiralize and how spiralizing has changed my life!

  1. The creamy factor here is out of this world! Red Thai Curry is seriously my favorite and I can’t wait to try this one out! Heading over to the blog!

  2. cathyo :

    I am making this soon….looks fantatic!

  3. I’ve made almost the exact same curry recipe, using Taste of Thai red curry but have not tried this with sweet potato noodles. I always add scallops and some sort of white fish at the end, which don’t need much cooking time. Can’t wait to try the noodles!

  4. Anonymous :

    Love Thai, but can’t find the recipe.

  5. This sounds fantastic! Love the sweet potato noodles!

  6. I always look at your blog when I’m hungry and then I regret it. This looks too good, and oh so creamy!

  7. I love curry! Sweet potato noodles … brilliant!

  8. Hi Ali,
    You linked to this on Food Bloggers Who Love Recipe Round Ups, but sweet potatoes are too high carb for my readers. Do you have a recipe with coconut oil that uses zucchini noodles instead? I would love to link to it!

  9. Made this today. So so SO good. I had to stop myself after eating 2 bowls full.

  10. Maggie :

    Loved it! The curry sauce freezes well. Not sure how to upload the pic or I would! Love your blog!

  11. Theresa :

    I made this with salmon. So good!

  12. Yum! I can’t wait to try this Thai red coconut curry recipe. I’ve been thinking about what noodles to try with Indian curry and you are a genius with sweet potato. The sweetness goes perfectly with the red coconut curry. I’m featuring this recipe on my gluten free Asian recipes round up: http://dontmesswithmama.com/gluten-free-asian-recipes

  13. SJSJ :

    Tried this recipe and the measurements were totally off… I used only 2 sweet potatoes (you called for 3) and still didn’t have enough liquid. Compensated with veg broth and carton coconut milk because that’s all I had in a pinch so it didn’t thicken into a sauce… Disappointed!
