I wanted to let you know in advance – there’s something different to this curry and yes it means an extra step and just a little extra time but it is 110% worth it! The variation with this curry is roasting the sweet potato and carrots in garlic powder and salt beforehand. I think this extra step really brings out the flavours of the sweet potato and makes them even sweeter. There is a very big difference between roasted vegetables and those that have been sautéed and boiled – well according to my taste buds there is but I’d love to hear your feedback as to whether you taste the difference also!
Small meals like these are perfect when you’re recovering from an autoimmune episode – with minimal ingredients they aren’t time consuming and you’ll exert little energy throwing all it together.
If you do get a chance to give this roasted sweet potato, carrot and chickpea curry a go, don’t forget to tag a photo with #live_minimal or @live_minimal on Instagram so I can see how it turns out!
