Coconut Green Curry with Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

Active Time: 20 minutes   |   Total Time: 35 minutes   |   Serves 4  |  Vegan  |  Gluten Free

  • 1 jalapeño, cut crosswise into thirds
  • 2-inch piece peeled ginger, sliced
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 13-.5-ounce can coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 pint small cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 5 ounces (about 8 cups) fresh baby spinach
  • Cooked jasmine rice, for serving
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges for serving

In a food processor, combine the jalapeño, ginger, shallot, garlic, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Pulse into a paste.

In a large pot, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the ginger paste and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Stir in the coconut milk, salt, and ¼ cup water. Let come to a boil.

Add the sweet potatoes and tomatoes to the pot. Reduce the heat so the curry simmers. Cover partially with a lid and cook for 18 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the tomatoes burst.

Add the spinach and cover tightly. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the spinach starts to wilt. Remove the lid and stir until the spinach is completely wilted. If the curry is a little thick, add a splash of water. Taste for salt; you may want to add a little more.

Serve the curry over rice with a squeeze of lime.
