  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled & diced into bite sized chunks
  • 2 heaped tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 1 can Coconut Milk (400ml/13.5oz)
  • 1 cup / 250ml Vegetable Stock
  • 1/2 can Chickpeas, drained
  • 2 big handfuls Baby Spinach
  • 1 handful Fresh Coriander/Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 medium White Onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Chilli Flakes, to taste
  • Olive Oil


  • Pop your sweet potato on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle over your cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper, then combine until fully coated. Place in the oven at 200c/390f for 25-30mins.
  • Meanwhile, heat up a drizzle of oil in a suitably sized pot/pan over low-medium heat. Add your curry paste and fry for a few minutes.
  • Add your onions, garlic and ginger and fry until they soften. Add your coconut milk and vegetable stock, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Stir in your chickpeas and soy sauce.
  • Once thickened, stir in your spinach and coriander/cilantro and simmer until it wilts. Add in your roasted sweet potato, give it a gentle stir, then taste test for seasoning/spice.
  • Serve over rice with an extra sprinkle of coriander/cilantro!



a) Thai Red Curry Paste - Make sure your oil is only on a low-medium before you add the curry paste, otherwise it's going to spit right back at you.
