CURRIED SWEET POTATO STEW

When a boat load of rice shows up at your door (#weekdaywin) you figure out how you’re going to use it, and when a craving for curry and sweet potato hits you like a ton of bricks there’s no question what you’re going to do. Curried sweet potato stew of course. 

I should mention that this post is in no way sponsored, but I was sent some rice from Minute Rice to test drive in a recipe, and I mean I couldn’t let it go to waste.

I’ve been making this curried chick pea recipe for years, and I’ve been
adding more and more veggies into the mix over the years. Recently I had
the WORST craving for sweet potato, and while I make some amazing
roasted sweet potatoes I wanted a different texture (it was a very
specific craving), so I decided to make a sweet potato stew. It made
sense at the time, and later (when I ate it, and it was DELICIOUS). 



It was kind of serendipitous that rice magically showed up at my door because I love rice, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that my rice cooker is my favorite appliance. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, but a rice cooker will change your life especially when it comes to week nights.  You add rice, water, and press the button, and it’s ready when you are. Somehow it magically knows when the rice is ready no matter what kind if rice you put inside. My faves are brown rice, and quinoa, but white rice is a great treat every now and then especially if you need a little pep in your step (it does convert to sugar in your body, so be forewarned.

Add chicken, and cook until brown
Toast your spices by placing the spices in a pan and heat until aromatic. 
Once aromatic add spices and let cook while stirring continuously just until the mixture
sticks together.

mixture dries out (clumps together).  
Remove from heat and slowly add
coconut (almond or soy) milk and the stock and mix well.  
Bring temperature up to a
boil.
Add sweet potato and frozen veggies and cook until the sweet potato is tender and soft.
Add chick peas and simmer until ready to serve.
