Simply Creamy Sweet Potato Curry

This curry is the perfect compromise. Simply Creamy Sweet Potato Curry, which is hearty but won’t weigh you down, is swimming in a creamy coconut milk broth that’s rich with Jalapeno and spicy ginger.

It will get us pretty excited around these parts. I added the vegetables I had in my crisper (red pepper, green beans, and summer squash) to create a colorful dish. The past week we’ve been testing it and then shooting it so we’ve been eating a lot of curries. And it’s been totally divine!

Simply Creamy Sweet Potato Curry! This is a healthy curry recipe that is vegan (dairy-free), and easy to make in 1-pot on the stovetop. It’s a wonderful comfort meal for dinner which is also great for meal prep.
