Step by step instructions to make Sweet Potato Curry

Can you freeze chickpeas in a curry?

Absolutely! This Sweet Potato Curry has enough liquid to cover the vegetables so it is so easy for freezing. It also makes it so easy for meal prep and make ahead meals.

Make always sure any curry you prepare has enough liquid that it is good for freezing.

For more variation add lentils for a sweet potato lentil curry which will add even more texture. Into more creamy curries? I got you covered you can add  2 Tbs peanut butter and 1/4 peanuts for topping to make a satay sweet potato curry.

Hi, I haven’t tried this recipe but I wanted to ask what if you don’t have Coconuts milk? What can you add alternatively?

Florian

Hi Fatana! Cashew milk will work, but the result will be different. Hope that helps. Let me know what you think.

This is such a simple recipe with so much flavor. The leftovers are even better. I made a double batch of it and my husband I Packed up the rest in meal prep containers for our work lunches. Goes awesome with quinoa! I actually like adding more spinach. Just consider the sweet potato cooking time. Depending on how much you make. I always doubled it, it will take longer to cook like closer to 20 mins and depending on the size you cut your sweet potatoes. So good! One of my favorite recipes!

This recipe was spectacular! I like my curries with a lot of sauce, so I added 2 more tablespoons of red curry paste and another can of coconut milk. I also doubled the spinach because I love it. It was super simple to make and will definitely be added to my recipe rotation. Thank you for sharing!
