I’ve got a delicious vegan sweet potato curry recipe for you. This recipe is so comforting! It’s a great vegan dinner recipe for curry lovers.
I’ve got the recipe for this vegan sweet potato curry from the cookbook Vegan Soul Food from Jason Tjon Affa. The book is only available in Dutch, but I’m sharing the recipe for the sweet potato curry in English here. The whole cookbook is full of vegan recipes. From breakfast to dinner and always very colourful. I also love the bright orange colour of this sweet potato curry.
With sweet potatoes, chickpeas and tomato this curry is a very healthy dinner recipe. There are no butter, milk, cream, cheese or other animal products needed for the curry. It’s 100% vegan.
I served my sweet potato curry with naan bread, but as it can be quite difficult to find vegan naan bread you can also serve it with rice instead.
