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.

This is delicious, yet rich. For me the serving size with brown rice was one cup. I Mueller to chop the sweet potatoes after I peeled them and sliced them into half inch coins. I did put spinach in the recipe. It was nice to add that green color. If freezing leftovers, I would not add the spinach. The four tablespoons of red curry was good, though I love spice so I would increase that next time.

I noticed that I should be attentive to the doneness of the sweet potatoes. If overcooked, they break down.

I would definitely make this again

I made this tonight for dinner and added ground turkey for my hubby. It was delicious great flavors. We will definitely be eating this again. I seasoned the turkey with a tbsp on red curry paste and about a thumb size of grated fresh ginger salt and pepper. Cooked it up then added to the pot to simmer with the beans and spinach.
