I decided to do a little twist on one of my favorite dishes.  Thai Vegan Sweet Potato Curry! Instead of adding animal protein or tofu, I switched it up and added sweet potato.  It's delicious.  The sweet flavor of the potato with the spiciness of the curry is a amazing balance of sweet and spice.

Here's what you need:

For the green curry paste:

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 stalk fresh lemongrass
  • 1/4 cup shallot
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro (with leaves and stem)
  • 1-3 Thai chilies (or jalapeno)
  • 1-2 inches of ginger
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tsp brown coconut sugar
  • 1 Tsp pink himalayan salt
  • 1 Tsp cumin (ground)
  • 1 Tsp coriander (ground)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • Handful of Thai basil or sweet basil

For the stir-fry:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 1 medium sweet potato (cubed)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 2-3 Tbsp coconut oil

Add all of the curry ingredients into a blender and blend until it creates a creamy/paste consistency.  Heat a wok or deep frying pan over medium-high heat.  Drizzle coconut oil and add curry paste.  Stir-fry until its fragrant (about 2 minutes).  

Add bay leaves to the mix.  When the sauce comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low to get a nice simmer.  Add the sweet potato and simmer for another 5-10 minutes until sweet potato is soft.  Add the bell pepper and broccoli, then cook for another 5 minutes or until veggies and cooked.  Now reduce the heat to low and add the rest of the coconut milk.  

Now taste test! If the curry is not salty enough add more soy sauce, if it's too salty add fresh lime or lemon.

Now its ready to serve!  Accompany with some jasmine rice, because you know... Rice = Life (or maybe I only think that because I'm Filipino lol)

Enjoy!

Be happy and healthy
