Creamy Sweet Potato and Green Bean Chicken Coconut Curry

Hi Everyone!

For the last two weeks I’ve managed to have caught a bit of nasty cold and flu unfortunately! It seems to be at the tail-end now (hopefully!)…so I’ve just started feeling better and being in the kitchen more!

One of my friend’s said her favourite remedy when she is sick is to have a curry. I thought I’d try this theory out and decided to create a curry. Now, I’m not actually a fan of things too spicy and, in general, I’m not really into hot currys! So this recipe is quite mild, but I found the taste to be a delicious, warming flavour that was perfect to have in this cold UK weather!vvxf

Because this recipe is mild, I think it would be a great recipe to use to introduce those who don’t like spicy dishes to a curry dish. It is also filled with delicious sweet potatoes, crunchy green beans, spinach, chicken and mixed with creamy coconut milk on a bed of brown rice – yum!

Better yet – this recipe uses little pots and pan! One frypan for the curry and one saucepan for the brown rice – that’s it for whole recipe. This recipe is also allergy friendly with no dairy, corn, gluten, wheat, eggs or fish!

If you like things a little spicier – I would suggest using a stronger curry powder or increasing the amount! Feel free to serve with Naan bread and yoghurt.

Hope you enjoy the recipe!
