Vegan and Gluten Free Thai Curry Bowls! Layers of rice, mango, kale, carrots, peppers and the BEST red curry Thai sauce!
Yes, it’s three days before Thanksgiving, and I’m posting Thai food. I know, I know. While every food blogger is posting on biscuits, stuffing, and green bean casseroles, I am dreaming of warmer weather and spicy Thai peanut bowls. Forgive me?
It’s not that I don’t like traditional Thanksgiving foods, I do, but- I need a break. Moreover, I need a spicy break. Something that doesn’t involve sweet potato or sage. We had our Friendsgiving last week and after overdoing it on mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, I wanted something that didn’t resemble traditional holiday fare.
Curry Peanut Bowl to the Rescue!
Besides containing 4 servings of fruits and vegetables in every portion, this bowl is packed with texture! Crunchy shredded carrots, sweet, juicy mango, al dente brown rice, crisp red bell pepper and kale.
Then, we top everything with a spicy-sweet red curry peanut sauce. Then, we eat and eat and eat until we are ready for more Thanksgiving flavors in a few days. I need breaks like this. I am not the person who can eat one thing repeatedly and never tire of it, hummus excluded. I crave variety in my life as much as I do in my diet, which is why I am so drawn to dishes like this. Every bite of this bowl is a new experience, depending what ingredient ends up on your fork!
This sauce! I cannot get enough of this curry sauce, which I adapted from Lindsay’s Red Curry Sauce. A little peanut, a little salty, a little spicy. You know how I feel about my sauces, and this is no exception. For a quick snack/meal, I’ve been eating this sauce with steamed broccoli and leftover rice.
