I had a similar dish at a vegan restaurant downtown and adapted it to my own taste. Feel free to add any of your own steamed veggies! Garnish with additional cilantro, if desired.

  • Place sunflower seeds in a bowl and pour in enough water to cover; soak for about 10 minutes.

  • Mix 1 1/2 cans coconut milk, 1/4 cup curry paste, 1/4 cup cilantro, juice of 1 lime, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium-low heat until curry sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and mix pasta into curry sauce; cook and stir over low heat.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, about 2 minutes. Season broccoli with salt and curry powder and transfer to a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Drain sunflower seeds and place in a blender with remaining coconut cream, remaining curry paste, remaining cilantro, juice of 1 lime, nutritional yeast, and sugar; blend until thick and smooth.

  • Spoon pasta mixture over broccoli. Pour sunflower seed mixture over pasta and stir to coat evenly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbling, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use coconut cream instead of coconut milk (I got mine from Trader Joe's.)

I used sunflower seeds soaked for about 10 minutes in water, but you can use cashews or peanuts instead.

You can use any steamed veggies in this. I used a broccoli and cauliflower mix when I made it, but you could do it with kale, too! I just seasoned it with curry powder and salt while I steamed it in the microwave.
