VEGAN SWEET POTATO & KALE COCONUT CURRY

There are a few dishes that make me especially happy during these cold fall months and one of my favorites is this Vegan Sweet Potato and Kale Coconut Curry.

My favorite Vegan Sweet Potato and Kale Coconut Curry in a bowl.

The slightly sweet taste from the sweet potato pairs perfectly with the hint of spice from the curry. The kale adds healthy nutrients and a vibrant green color to the dish. And let’s not forget the coconut that hugs the entire dish. My favorite way to serve this curry is over rice.

Full of flavor and nutrients, I can not say enough good about this recipe. It is hands down one of my favorites.

  • Author: Chef Ani
  • Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon onion, sliced
  • 1–2 teaspoons ginger, minced or grated
  • 4 large shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 6 brussel sprouts (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg liquid aminos
  • 1 tablespoons Better-Than-Bouillon 
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (I use Thai Kitchen brand)
  • 1 large kale leaf
  • 1 block firm tofu 
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave nectar 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS

In a medium saucepan, sauté onion in the oil for a couple of minutes.
Add the minced fresh ginger and the sliced Shiitake mushrooms.
Sauté for a couple of minutes.
Add the sliced sweet potatoes and Brussel sprouts. Sauté for another couple of minutes. Add the water, curry paste, tomato paste, Braggs, Better-Than-Bouillon, and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 5 minutes, until vegetables are fork tender, but still firm. 

Add the coconut milk. Bring to a boil.
Add kale and let it boil down for a minute. Stir to combine. Next add tofu. Let simmer for about 10 minutes without lid. Finish the dish with a touch of maple and fresh lemon juice. 

NOTES

Make this dish without the lid as it reduces the sauce to a nice consistency.
