Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry

26th January 2019

The tastiest vegan curry I’ve stumbled upon so far...it’s sooo damn yummy you’ll be licking every last morsel off your plate!

I managed to get three servings at £1.37 each with 80g of white basmati rice.

Ingredients;

  •  I tbsp coconut oil (10p)
  • I tbsp cumin seeds (10p)
  • 1 medium onion (5p)
  • 3 large garlic cloves (10p)
  •  4 tsp fresh grated garlic (20p)
  • 1 tsp turmeric (4p)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander (4p)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (2p)
  • 350g dices sweet potato (30p)
  • 480g tinned Chickpeas (66p)
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes (33p)
  • 250ml coconut cream (£1.20)
  • 120g spinach (homegrown)

Method;

  1. Rinse and soak the chickpeas for 12 hours. Rinse again before using.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium/high heat. Added the cumin seeds (they should sizzle away if the oil is hot enough). Toast for a minute or so until fragrant – be carful not to burn them. Stir in the onion with a pinch of salt for around 5 minutes until they soften a little.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, and chilli flakes. Stir and sauté for a few minutes until the garlic softens.
  4. Add the sweet potato, chickpeas, tomatoes with their juices and a little water, and the coconut cream. Stir and cover for 20-30 minutes until the potatoes becomes tender.
  5. Stir in the spinach and coo until wilted. Season with salt and black pepper.
  6. Serve with brown or white basmati rice, a handful of fresh coriander and a wedge of lime to garnish.
