In this recipe, I’ll show you how to make one of my favorite red curry dishes using sweet potatoes for a rich, filling, and inexpensive meal!
This curry dish is vegan, gluten-free, and delicious! It takes under an hour to put this entire meal together and makes enough to serve four people. If you enjoy meal prepping, curry is a fantastic option since it can be easily stored and reheated later in the week.

What Is Curry?
Curry is the umbrella term that refers to a variety of Indian dishes which combine a ton of herbs and spices to create a meal with intense flavor and depth. In most recipes online, curry is the general name for a sauce-based meal that uses curry powder or paste as the base.
You’ll find that peanuts are often used in these kinds of dishes since it helps create texture and richness. Try substituting the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter, coconut butter, or even tahini if you have a nut allergy!
