Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry
Made the sweet potato and spinach curry from the #plantparadoxcookbook for lunch (pg. 141). It was SO delicious!!! Especially if you love Indian food like me 😊🍛.
Serve with either miracle, cauliflower, or Basmati rice, depending on your preference! Definitely check this recipe out!
If you don't have all the spices to make your own curry, just use 2 Tbsp curry powder instead! The flavor won't be as complex, but it will still be delicious.

1/3 tsp cumin seeds

3 whole cloves
3 minced garlic cloves
1 red onion, diced
