If you’re looking for a quick and simple supper or dinner, then try this Plant-Based Thai Green Curry. It’s very versatile – you can add whatever veg you have to hand. I’ve used sweet potatoes as they’re packed with goodness. Check out the illustration below.

If HALF of your diet was solely baked sweet potatoes with no salt, you would get all the nutrients in the table. Amazing!

I’ve also used onions, cauliflower, Tenderstem broccoli and spinach. I served it with brown rice and roasted sweet potato. (You’d never guess I’d just bought a huge amount of sweet potatoes!) You can also toast some desiccated coconut and sprinkle it over – it’s delicious! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
