I was recently asked to come up with a fab and easy family meal … well this is one of my favourites .. quick , easy and healthy !!! You can’t go wrong !! I make this for us as a midweek meal when I seriously cannot be bothered to stand in the kitchen cooking for ages after a busy day at work … It’s so easy even the husband can make it !! Here goes …
Sweet Potato Curry
300ml vegetable stock
750g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
100g frozen peas
1 onion , thinly sliced
225 g fresh spinach leaves
2 garlic cloves , thinly sliced
1 red chili , thinly sliced ( deseed it if you like .. I don’t bother as we like a KICK )
1 tbsp curry powder ( hot is good but if you like it milder you use what you prefer)
4 ripe tomatoes , chopped (or use 1 tin of chopped tomatoes)
salt & pepper
Pour the stock into a large saucepan and add the sweet potato & onion . Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes .
Now add the spinach , garlic , chilli , curry powder, peas and tomatoes , stir well and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes . the spinach should be nicely wilted and the potatoes should be tender.
Season with the salt & pepper . Serve hot with boiled rice and Nan bread .
Now there is nothing hard about that meal !!! Treat yourself this week to this amazing curry !! Go on …
