Take your quarantine cooking to the next level with this vegan chickpea and sweet potato curry! 🍛
As most of us are, I have been spending lots of time in the kitchen trying out new recipes while self-isolating. For quite some time, I have considered trying out various curry dishes, but never found the time to do so.
This vegan chickpea and sweet potato curry dish was adapted from a recipe I saw in a buzzfeedtasty Youtube video. The best thing about it? – It is a one-pot meal that makes 4 large servings, and is ready in less than 30 minutes! It stores well in the fridge for up to a week and tastes even more delicious when reheated. 🤩 PLUS…it’s a great way to utilize the canned and frozen foods you may have in your freezer or cupboard right now. 🥫🍠 This dish is super versatile and can be made with whichever canned/dried beans and fresh/frozen vegetables you have available. 🥦🥕 Feel free to substitute or add vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots, snow peas, bell peppers, cauliflower, etc.
