Gluten Free Curry Sauce Recipe (Dairy Free, Vegan)

This gluten free curry sauce recipe is a simple and delicious sauce to add to your favorite proteins and serve over rice. This sauce is made from blended vegetables and spices, and is a fantastic sauce for simmering.

Curry sauce has so many uses, and is simple to meal prep/batch cook to freeze or use later. I love serving this curry sauce with crispy baked tofu, honey chicken, or simple sheet pan vegetables over rice for a healthy and delicious meal.

We make vegetable curry so often that it’s nice to switch it up and make a curry sauce instead – which blends all the curry ingredients together into a creamy, velvety sauce. I served this sauce over basmati rice and some crispy tofu and it was amazing! It’s versatile enough to go with any protein: chicken, pork, or even beef – or your favorite roasted vegetables.

This sauce is super meal-prep friendly. You can make a big batch (or even double it!) and freeze the sauce in portioned containers for the week. Just thaw, simmer any curry ingredients in, and you have dinner in no time.

Make Curry Sauce Gluten Free for a Healthy Version

This gluten free curry sauce recipe is a simple meal to make without the wheat. I’m all about making recipes gluten free when I can. Gluten free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around gluten free pantry staples and swapping in a few wheat-less ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family.

I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meals for everyone at your table.

One Pot Curry Sauce For an Easy Weeknight Meal

This curry sauce recipe is the perfect one-pot sauce for an amazing lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these summer months when I don’t want a lot of burners going at once. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  And one pot makes cleaning up a breeze. The stove does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my other One Pot Recipes for easy meals that are ready in no time!

How Do I Make This Curry Sauce Gluten Free?

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and garlic, and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes until vegetables have begin to soften. Add the carrot, bell pepper, tomatoes with their juice, ginger and stir. 
  2. Now for the spices: add the salt, garam masala, cumin, coriander, paprika, turmeric, fenugreek, and black pepper. Pour in the water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover, and reduce to a low simmer and gently cook for 1 hour until all vegetables are softened.
  3. Add the coconut milk to the pot, and give it a good stir. With your immersion handheld blender, blend the sauce for 3-4 minutes until smooth. Add fresh chopped cilantro for garnish, and enjoy!

 

The Best Immersion Blender for Soups

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix immersion blender is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my immersion blender for recipes like this sauce, as it’s much easier to manage than transferring all the ingredients to a stand blender. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a weekly basis!
