Spinach & Sweet Potato Curry
There are no rules here. Round up veggies you have on hand- we've chosen eggplant, sweet potatoes and chickpeas - add in freshly ground garam masala or other Indian spices (or individual spices) & your fresh ginger, garlic & turmeric and you've got a protein packed, healthy, flavorful one pot sweet potato curry to warm up any easy weekend or weeknight dinner.
