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 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!

I love you, I love you, I love you. OMG, this recipe is everything you could hope for on these crisper beautiful fall days. I recently came across some BEAUTIFUL local sweet potatoes and have been enjoying them, however, I need to satisfy my spicy cravings and this is going to do the trick. Cannot wait to make a large batch and freeze some as well to use later. I know it will come in so handy.
