Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Curry

Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Curry

I really like this recipe for Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Curry.  It’s easy & you can change it up with white potatoes, or other veggies if you don’t have cauliflower.  Serve over couscous or rice – I think you’ll like it too.

Don’t let a long list of ingredients put you off.   If you have the spices on hand, the grocery list is pretty short and the prepping involves only some mincing and chopping – it’s easy stuff and well worth the effort as it is hearty, wholesome and economical as well (leftovers are yummy if you’re lucky enough to have some!)

Ingredients

  • olive or other vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic + a 2″ piece of fresh ginger, minced together
  • 1 large yellow or white onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
