Pea & Sweet Potato Curry (Meat, Dairy & Gluten Free!)
CATEGORIES: Dinners + Lunch Recipes
I tried really hard to think of sexier name for this. Pea & Sweet Potato Curry sounds very British and plain doesn’t it? But trust me this is super delicious.
This sort of came together by accident when one night just before we left for our world travels, I looked in the cupboard and had very little in there. But thankfully I always have frozen peas and my husband is obsessed with sweet potatoes so we always have an abundance and I always have spices so voila a tasty curry was made. (Plus it’s good to show that I don’t ONLY eat Sweet Treats… I eat curry too – thats balance right?!)
Curries are a weekly staple in our house. A lot of my clients who are transitioning to eating gluten free find what to eat for lunch the hardest but Joe and I (Joe being the man of dreams/husband but has recently gone sans gluten) just make a massive batch of veggie curry at the start of the week and have it with sauerkraut for lunch or topped with avocado. Tasty speedy stuff.
This is the perfect blend of healthy carbs from the potato, protein from peas, fats from coconut and all the healing goodness from the turmeric and cayenne (find out why I have turmeric every day here).
Serve on its own or with rice, cauliflower rice and ideally with a side of sauerkraut 😉
