Slow Cooker Lamb Curry {Vegan}


Day 295.

I’m so excited to try the slow cooker seitan from Kathy Hester’s book The Vegan Slow Cooker. The book is definitely a worthwhile investment for the vegan mommy. It’s chock full of great recipes that you can start and walk away and play with your kids. The recipe is a little different from the usual seitan recipe I’m used to because it’s intended to be used in slow cooker recipes. The seitan is a little wetter than the standard seitan and I think it will really soak up the flavors well. I’m using the seitan to replace the lamb in this equally delicious-sounding recipe from Mommie Cooks. I also replaced butter with margarine (or coconut oil) and yogurt with coconut milk.

Slow Cooker Lamb Curry
Adapted from Slow Cooker Lamb Curry.

  • 4 cups cubed lamb or slow cooker seitan in broth (or 8 ounces seitan (like this) and 2 cups Easy Slow Cooker Vegetable Broth)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons curry (like this)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  •  2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala (like this)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 large baking potatoes, cubed
  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 cup coconut milk (I love buying them in bulk!)
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • Brown rice, cooked (for serving)

Place all ingredients, except cilantro and coconut milk in slow cooker and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours. Stir in coconut milk and serve over rice, topped with cilantro.

The Results
Oh my goodness the slow cooker seitan turned out perfectly in this dish. The meal is one of those curry dishes that is like a rich hearty sauce filled with delicious bits of veggies. The tomato taste is pretty dominant and I think, in the future, I’d increase the curry powder a bit.

    Recipe sounds easy and delicious. I would personally substitute butter for the margarine though…..
    i get why you included margarine, but not very healthy
