Traditionally, curry can take hours to prepare. When under a time crunch, you can shortcut the whole process by using store-bought curry paste and coconut milk! This simple trick saves time without making you feel like you cheated the authenticity of the dish.

Serves: 4


  • 3 tablespoons Simple Truth® Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 Yukon Gold potato, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium zucchini squash, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow squash, chopped
  • 1 can Kroger® Premium Coconut Milk
  • 1⁄4 cup red curry paste
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Cooked brown rice


  • Heat the coconut oil to medium-high in a large skillet or wok. Add the yellow onion, carrot and potato. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies have softened, but are still al dente, about 8-10 minutes.
  • While the veggies are cooking, prepare the curry sauce by pouring the coconut milk and curry paste into a blender and blend until completely smooth. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Add the bell pepper, ginger, and garlic to the skillet with the veggies and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  • Add the zucchini and yellow squash, along with the red curry sauce. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until squash is cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes.
  • Taste curry for flavor and add sea salt to taste. Serve curry with cooked rice and fresh cilantro.
