sweet potato, spinach and chickpea curry
- 4 tsp coconut oil for sauteeing
- 1 tbsp cumin seeds
- 1 sweet onion (medium-sized) finely chopped
- 1 tsp fine sea salt
- 4 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (or cayenne pepper) to taste based on your preference
- 1 sweet potato (large-sized)
- 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1 can diced tomatoes with juices
- 1 can light coconut milk
- 1 package baby spinach
- in a large saucepan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat and add in the cumin seeds.
- when you hear the cumin seeds sizzle, that's when the pan is warm enough
- add in the finely diced onions
- sauté the onion until it is soft and translucent
- add the garlic, ginger, turmeric and red pepper flakes (or cayenne pepper)
- stir the mixture until fully combined and the garlic is soft with a slight caramelization
- add the sweet potato, chick peas, tomatoes (including their juices in the can), and the can of coconut milk
- give everything a mix, cover and simmer over medium heat, stirring every 10 minutes
- simmer for ~1 hour until the sweet potatoes are softened and the curry has thickened
- as the sweet potato softens, it transforms the curry into the thick texture as a lot of the sweet potato becomes more of a mash
- when the curry is at this stage, stir in the bag of spinach until cooked fully and wilted
- let simmer for another ~5 minutes
- let cool slightly before eating (i am notorious for burning my mouth because i don't like to wait...)
