30-Minute Sweet Potato and Kale Coconut Curry {Gluten-free and Vegan}

I have been all about the simple healthy one-pot meals, as of late. Life has been hectic for us. Lots of work, deadlines, house guests every two to three weeks, commitments, shows and so on. I am certainly not complaining, such is the life of the self employed. But, some days by the time I am done cooking and creating recipes for the blog, editing photos and writing back all the emails – by dinner I am actually just too exhausted to make any sort of feast. The sad truth is that as a food blogger sometimes my own meals get forgotten, I am so focused on making the recipes that I have planned for the blog to share with all of you. Plus,the idea of tons of prep, lots of steps, loads of dishes – it all seems overwhelming and unwelcomed at the end of a busy day, especially a day that included much of just that.

A good 30-minute, one-pot meal means that, besides a few minutes for cutting up a few ingredients and dirtying a cutting board or knife, dinner is done before you can blink an eye. Just like that, you can sit down and enjoy a nutritious home-cooked meal with your love and the clean up after is next to nothing. Enter this super easy 30-minute Sweet Potato and Kale Coconut Curry.

This curry has an incredible flavor from the the fresh ginger and the coconut milk, plus of course, the red curry paste, which has a subtle heat and a wonderful hint of lemongrass. I go heavier on the red curry paste than most, since I love that flavor and I can’t get enough. If you want a more subtle taste and tad less heat (though I don’t personally find red curry spicy at all) go for just 1 or 2 tablespoons.

This curry is definitely super good on it’s own, but you certainly can serve it over rice (we like basmati), quinoa or even cauliflower rice for a totally grain-free pale0-friendly dish, which was also really enjoy. Add some cilantro, red pepper flakes, a squirt of lime juice, green onions, or even coconut flakes, when serving. And of course, besides savoring every bite of this, be sure to also enjoy the lack of dishes after you are done.

Coconut and curry is an amazing combination! The sweet potato must really add something to it! I love it!

I made this for dinner tonight with a few changes, using ingredients I had on hand. I added zucchini, substituted swiss chard for the kale, and left out the peas. It was delicious!

Yay I am so glad you enjoyed this Abby. I love your additions and substitutions. Yum!

“he sad truth is that as a food blogger sometimes my own meals get forgotten,…” HAHAHA 😀 If that could only happen to me sometimes. I always think about food and what to eat next 😉

Love the recipe by the way, I’m on my way to the kitchen right now to get some lunch going, I guess this will it!

Oh don’t be fooled, I am always thinking about food too, I just sometimes spend so much of my day creating the meals to share here on the site that I am eating dinner for lunch or breakfast for dinner and things get all screwy and I have no desire to cook when I should be 😉

This looks and sounds so delicious. I love playing with curry and this seems like such a solid recipe, simple recipe. I also LOVE the one pot idea. I agree, sometimes it’s easy to get so wrapped up in prepping for the blog and then taking care of Life stuff that we forget to just take care of ourselves. This kind of meal helps take care of everything at once haha

Awesome Andrea, that makes me so happy to hear that. Thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know.

This was delicious! Used some peas but mostly used edamame to add in some more protein. Loved it! And so did my omnivorous friends!

This is in our regular rotation now. So simple to make, and so good! Leftovers are great, too. Thank you for a great recipe!
