Yellow Curry with Sweet Potato and Quinoa

This was my first go at making a curry dish, and I have to say, it turned out great. I not only had Caleb praising my name but another friend of ours started doing a giddy dance after taking a bite, right before my eyes. Something tells me I’ll be making this again very soon.

Veggie Ingredients:

  • 1 Yam
  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped

  • 1.5 tbsp indian curry spice
  • 1 tbsp himalayan crystal salt
  • 1/3 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp coriander seed (ground powder)
  • pinch of real cinnamon

Instructions:

1. First place your chopped onions in the pan, and let them warm until they become soft with a nice aroma. Add your coconut milk and the rest of your seasonings to the mix, stir.

2. Next put all of your veggies into the mix and stir again, until all of the veggies are covered in sauce and ready to simmer. Leave on medium heat, stirring on occasion until veggies are tender.
