scrummy sweet potato coconut curry.
There’s something about this time of year that really gets me craving a hearty meal. Cold weather and shorter days mean the perfect excuse to hunker down with a bubbling bowl of something delicious and sweet potato curry is always top of my list! This recipe is packed with fragrant ingredients that’ll get your taste buds tingling and leave you feeling warm and toasty from the inside, out. If you’re a planner, you can make up a big batch of the good stuff and freeze any leftovers for a quick, nutritious meal later in the week. And even better? This is a ‘one pot’ dish, which means minimal washing up.
To make your sweet potato coconut curry, you’ll need:
· 3x medium sweet potatoes
· 1x pack green beans, trimmed
· 1x tin kidney beans
· 1x tin chopped tomatoes
· 1x tin coconut milk
· Thumb-size piece of ginger, peeled & grated
· 2tsp tamari (soy sauce will also work well here)
· Half a bag fresh coriander
· 1x large green chilli, diced (remove the seeds if you don’t like it hot!)
· Pinch of salt and pepper
· Brown rice (or white if you prefer)
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop into 2cm cubes
3. Mix the chopped tomatoes and coconut milk together in a large saucepan and start to simmer on a medium heat
4. Add the grated ginger, diced chilli and a pinch of salt & pepper, to taste

6. Put the lid on the saucepan and allow to cook for 10mins
7. Drain and wash the kidney beans under cold running water
8. Add the kidney beans and trimmed green beans to the pan and allow to cook for another 5mins
9. Stir in the tamari (or soy sauce) and transfer the mixture to a large, oven-proof dish
10. Cook at 180°C for 25 mins
11. Rinse your rice under cold, running water, then put it on to boil while your curry is cooking
