Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Curry

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 cup cauliflower, chopped
  • 2 cups kale, shredded
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 3-4 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 (14 oz) can lite coconut milk*
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 Tbs red curry paste
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • Optional toppings: chopped cilantro, lime/lemon juice, sriracha, chopped dry roasted peanuts

*Lite coconut milk is a low-fat alternative. You may also substitute for unsweetened, unflavored soy or nut milk, cow’s milk (for non-vegan), or you may dilute regular coconut milk with water (i.e. 2/3 cup coconut milk + 1/3 cup water for a recipe that calls for 1 cup)


  1. Begin by preparing your vegetables
  2. In a large skillet, set heat to medium-high. Once hot, add the olive oil.
  3. Begin sautéeing the sweet potato once you see vapors from the pan, indicating the oil is hot enough. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Next, add the onion and cook for 3-5 minutes before adding the carrots.
  5. Cook the vegetables together for 5-7 minutes, then add the green peas, chickpeas, and mushrooms. Continue stirring together until all the vegetables are lightly tender.
  6. Next, add the seasonings and curry paste and stir for 1 minute before adding the tomato sauce and coconut milk.
  7. Bring the mixture to a simmer, covering with a lid and turning heat to low for 10 minutes.
  8. Then, add the kale and cook until lightly wilted. Remove the pan from heat.
  9. Serve over rice; if desired, top with a squeeze of lime or lemon juice and minced cilantro.
