Chickpea Sweet Potato Coconut Curry Bowl

This flavour-packed and super healthy curry bowl leans on frozen ready-to-use sweet potatoes (just as nutritious as the ones in the produce aisle by the way!), pre-washed spinach leaves and a ready-made curry sauce to help you get dinner on the table in under 25 minutes.  You can use any grain you desire instead of the quinoa (ie: rice).  You may be tempted to skip the step of frying the sweet potatoes but it really brings out the stunning natural sweetness of the vegetable.  Feel free to use either sauce indicated, they are both DELICIOUS!

Chickpea Sweet Potato Coconut Curry Bowl

Serves 4-6

Directions:

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the directions on the package (I bring 2 cups of quinoa with 4 cups of water to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile bring one medium and one small pot of water to a boil on the stove. Add the cauliflower to the medium pot and the sweet potatoes to the small pot.  Cook each until they are fork tender, approximately 5-7 minutes for the cauliflower and 10-12 minutes for the sweet potatoes, drain each and add them back to their respective pots.
  3. In a medium frying pan heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the cooked sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are lightly brown and caramelized.
  4. Add the sauce, garbanzo beans, coconut milk and spinach leaves to the cauliflower pot over medium heat. Cook until heated through and the spinach is just wilted.
  5. Stir in the sweet potato and serve over the quinoa or grain of choice. Garnish with the fresh chopped cilantro.
