Vegetable Curry Laksa

by Edward Daniel

Vegetable Curry Laksa came about purely because I was in Bali and was able to find fresh laksa leaves. For me this is an absolute treat as a chef. I get to experiment and to try new ingredients or ingredients available in other formats than I am used to in London. Also, I do not like to overcook my ingredients – so the beans and carrots in this dish retain their crunch flavour. I love this dish because you can taste the subtle flavours on both the laksa and curry leaves. This dish is for four servings.

What to do next

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
