SWEET POTATOES AHHHH they are one of my favs, so I love to use them any way I can, whether it’s a Mexican recipe, Indian, Asian or just a plain sweet potato, they call my name. I know, that’s a little weird, but the flavor is so satisfying and a comfort food for me. This recipe is based on a recipe from veganricha.com. I served it with Jasmine rice and it was SCRUMPTIOUS! Here is the recipe:
Peanut Sweet Potato Curry with Veggies and Peas
1 C. Onion, chopped
5 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 inch Ginger, minced (optional, I did not use it)
2 C. Cauliflower florets, coarsely chopped
1 small Red Pepper, chopped
1 med to large Sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 tsp. Curry
1 tsp. Garam Masala
1 tsp Salt
1/3 C. Peanut Butter
1 can Chick peas
2 T. Lime juice
2 T. Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Distilled white vinegar
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1/4 tsp. Pepper flakes
2 C. Light coconut milk (1 poured the can into a 2 cup container, which is a few ounces shy of 2 cups and then filled it the rest of the way with water to make 2 cups exactly.)
3/4 C. Frozen peas
Black pepper to taste
Lemon juice and Cayenne
Basil and peanuts for garnish
Put a small amount of water in a Dutch oven or skillet over medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, add onion and cook until translucent. Fold in ginger.
Add peppers, cauliflower, sweet potato, curry powder, garam masala, and a dash of black pepper and cook for 3 min. or until spices are very fragrant.
Add the rest of ingredients until frozen peas and stir well. Partially cover and cook for 15 min.
Taste and adjust salt, sweet and heat. Add a dash of lemon and cayenne if needed. Add peas and simmer another few min until the vegetables are cooked to desired doneness. Adjust consistency if needed, such as more coconut milk or water if its too thick.
Serve over rice. This could also be served as a soup by adding more water and adjusting the spices to your liking. Garnish with basil and peanuts. Enjoy!
