Easy 5 Ingredient Coconut Curry Recipe

Original recipe: Pinch of Yum

This 5-ingredient coconut curry has broccoli and chickpeas and a creamy coconut curry sauce that comes together super fast.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 1x

Ingredients:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 small heads broccoli (and/or other veggies of choice)
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons cold water
  • optional: minced garlic or onion

Directions:

  1. Sauté broccoli (and onion/garlic if you’re using it) in a tablespoon of oil. After a few minutes, add the coconut milk and let simmer for 5-8 minutes. The broccoli should soften but still be tender-crisp.
  2. Add the curry paste to the pan and whisk it until it combines with the coconut milk. Add the chickpeas.
  3. Bring to a slight boil and add the cornstarch. Boil for about a minute, then reduce heat and let cool slightly. Sauce will thicken as the mixture cools.
