Happy new week friends!
As we are approaching the end of the month, I thought I will squeeze one savoury recipe, which I hope you are going to love as much as I do!
Last week has been crazy busy. Between preparing tax return (ughhh), client's work, personal projects and all things blog/ social media related, I did not have an awful lot of time to cook. With limited time on my hands, my meals have consisted mainly of this roasted tomato and red pepper soup and...
Sweet potato curry- easy, quick and healthy meal for all!
That's right. I've been having this meal on repeat last week, and I think once you try it, you may do the same! Made with eight basic ingredients, ready in just over 30 minutes and VERY budget friendly (less than £2.40 per portion!). What's not to like?! Also, it's vegan-friendly, healthy and nourishing. I guarantee it will keep you satisfied, without feeling sluggish or stuffed! It is an easy meal that the whole family will enjoy. Perfect for a mid-week dinner, or whenever you are short of time, but still want eat healthy and nutritious meal.
I have based this recipe on my Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry, but simplified it A LOT!
How to make this sweet potato curry...
Start with scrubbing your sweet potato. Why scrubbing it? The skin has lots of great nutrients and not having to peel them is a great time saver! Just make sure you wash them, so they are clean. Cut the sweet potato into chunks (about 2.5 cm thick), do the same for peppers and onions.
In a large frying pan, or a heavy-bottomed saucepan melt the coconut oil, then add onions and peppers, cover with lid and fry on a medium heat until soft (this should take about 8-10 minutes). After that, add the sweet potato, curry paste, coconut milk and stir it well. Cover with lid and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through. Add coriander and top it with toasted almonds. Done!
Serve it with some rice or naan bread on site and enjoy!
