- Vegan recipes
- 9.4g (1.6g saturated)
- 36g (11.9g sugars)
- 1 large red onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
- Thumb-size piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
- Olive oil for frying
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2-3 sweet potatoes (about 600g), skin on, chopped into roughly 3cm chunks
- 500ml vegan vegetable stock (you may not need all of this)
- 1 heaped tbsp crunchy peanut butter
- 4 handfuls baby leaf spinach
- In a large heavy-based pan set over a medium heat, fry the onion, garlic, chilli and ginger in a little oil with a good pinch of salt for 10 minutes until softened.
- Add the cumin, coriander, garam masala, turmeric and cinnamon, then fry for 2-3 minutes more until aromatic.
- Add the sweet potatoes and enough vegetable stock to cover the contents of the pan by about two thirds. Simmer over a medium heat for 30-45 minutes, stirring often, until the liquid has reduced right down and the starch has leached from the sweet potatoes to create a thick sauce. It may seem like it’s taking a while but be patient.
- Once the sauce has thickened, stir in the peanut butter. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the spinach until it wilts, then serve with wholegrain rice, if you’re hungry.
