Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry

by -

Inspired by my recent visit to Thailand and my love of Thai food and all things coconutty, I have included a delicious recipe for a vegetarian coconut based curry spiced for the western palate!

Serves 4

Ingredients:

500g sweet potatoes peeled and cut into large chunks

3 tbsp coconut oil

1 red onion, chopped

2 garlic clives, crushed

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 large red chilli, deseeded and chopped

400mls coconut milk

250g washed baby spinach

Salt to taste

Method:

Cook the sweet potato in a large pan of boiling water for 8 10 mins, then drain and put to one side

Heat the coconut butter in a saucepan, add the onion, garlic and turmeric and fry over a gentle heat, stirring often for about 3 minutes. Stir in the chilli and fry for another 2 minutes.

Add the coconut milk, stir well and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the coconut milk has thickened slightly. Stir in the cooked sweet potatoes and a pinch of salt, and then cook the curry for a further 5 minutes.

Stir in the spinach, cover the pan and simmer gently for 2-3 minutes or until the spinach has wilted and the curry has heated through. Best eaten with chapattis or wholegrain rice.

  • "I had been back and forth to my GP with various digestive complaints including bloating, acid reflux, alternating constipation and diarrhoea and abdominal pain. My GP prescribed me laxatives and tablets for the acid reflux. I decided I was far too young at 36 years old to be having these problems and went to Natural Solutions. Andrea assessed all of my symptoms, looked at my diet and lifestyle and came up with a detailed but not overwhelming plan for me.  I felt someone was finally listening to me. Andrea suggested I try a gluten free diet among other things and try this for a month to see how that affected my symptoms. Wow! What a difference it has made. I no longer have the above symptoms. I no longer take any medication. I have energy, I rarely get a headache and it's made a huge difference to my Fibromyalgia symptoms.  At first it seemed a little daunting to be making such a huge change to my diet but Andrea was there with lots of recipe ideas and helpful tips. Andrea also took me to the local health food shop and gave me plenty of suggestions and alternatives. I would recommend Natural Solutions to everyone. "Tanya Mitchell
