- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes
- 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
- 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
- 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk (full-fat or lite)
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
- 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
- 1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 cups chopped kale or spinach
- Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish
- Cooked rice, quinoa, or naan bread for serving
- In a large pot or deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until softened and translucent.
- Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pot, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
- Stir in the curry powder, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper. Cook for 1 minute, allowing the spices to become fragrant.
- Add the diced tomatoes, coconut milk, and vegetable broth to the pot. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
- Add the diced sweet potato to the pot, making sure it’s submerged in the liquid. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
- Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, add the drained and rinsed chickpeas and chopped kale or spinach to the curry. Stir well and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the greens have wilted and the chickpeas are heated through.
- Taste the curry and adjust the seasoning as needed.
- Serve the curry over cooked rice, quinoa, or with naan bread. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.
