Sweet potato, coconut, curry… these are a few of my favorite things! This dish is so perfect for a chilly night and not to mention super easy to throw together. Oh and a huge plus? Ruthie LOVES it!! I took some and mashed it up and served it to her on her little spoon and she gobbled it up. She’s kind of still in the phase where she feels her food and throws most on the floor, but not with this curry! I love that she is already trying foods that I didn’t eat until I was in college. I have a good feeling that she will be an amazing eater as she grows up! My mom and I love curry so we have been loving the process of testing this recipe. I’ve made it 3 times now to perfect it and they were all super delicious but this last one is perfection.
I think serving curry over rice is the way to go, so i served this over cauliflower rice! You can totally serve it over regular rice, quinoa, or whatever grain you want. Or have it straight up in the bowl. You can also make it vegetarian by taking out the meat and using vegetable stock instead of chicken! So versatile and sooo delish.
How fun are these coconut bowls btw!
