Sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry

Creating meals and recipes that everyone can eat is very important to me and if you are having friends or family round for dinner, you want to cook something that everyone can enjoy together! This sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry is exactly that! It’s gluten and dairy free as well as being suitable for vegans, egg free and soya free! A perfect and filling dish which tastes amazing and is very cheap to make! My whole blog so far has been focused on sweet recipes so I really hope you enjoy this savoury dish and if you do make it, please send me a photo on Instagram!

400g peeled sweet potatoes cut into bite size pieces

1 red onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped or grated)

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp fresh ginger (finely chopped or grated)

1 tin chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

200g spinach

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tsp curry powder

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 gluten free vegetable stock cube

Black pepper


Lime wedges & coriander for serving


  1. Put your peeled sweet potato chunks into a saucepan of boiling water and leave to cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Whilst your sweet potato is cooking, cut up 1 red onion into small pieces and fry (in a large pan/saucepan) in your oil until it is soft. Add your chopped garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute.
  3. Add all of your spices (curry powder, cinnamon, paprika, turmeric, black pepper) to the onion and garlic mix and fry off for a couple of minutes. 
  4. Add your tin of chopped tomatoes and tomato paste and mix well, leaving to simmer.
  5. Mix together your vegetable stock cube and 3/4 pint of boiling water and pour half into your mixture. Leave to simmer for a few minutes until it starts to thicken slightly. Add the rest of the stock as and when you need to, when the sauce starts to get too thick,
  6. You should now drain off your partially cooked sweet potato chunks and add them to your saucepan with your tomatoes, cover and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Add your drained chickpeas, cover and leave to simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  8. Make sure your spinach is washed and stir this into the mixture, leaving it for around 2 minutes before it starts to wilt.
  9. Serve with rice, lime wedges, coriander and gluten free naan bread.
