Hurry! It's Curry!

I LUV curry!!! Absolutely LUV it! So, when I found this recipe I was super excited to make it! It calls for Irish or brown potatoes. I’m not a fan of those types of potatoes, so I used sweet potatoes. WOW!! The beautiful brilliant orange color against the gorgeous rich emerald green color of the collard greens makes for a high “drool factor!” Next time, I am going to use a mixture of greens, in addition to collard greens, maybe spinach, and kale or mustard greens.

I’m proud to say that everything in this recipe is ORGANIC! This is a great side dish for sure. If you like tofu (I don’t do soy of any type,) you can add marinated tofu chunks to this and it would make a nice entree. This is very easy to make as well.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

1 (lb) of “greens” or a mixture of greens
Wash and steam these for about 2 minutes
Remove to a bowl and set aside

1 large sweet potato peeled and cubed.
Use same water and steamer and steam for about 6 to 8 minutes. Remember; don’t cook the life, the color, and the nutrients outta veggies. I like mine crunchy. When done, set aside.

In a preheated skillet add and sauté over low to medium heat till hot
2 T vegetable stock or water
(you can also add 1 T. canned mandarin orange juice.. YUM!)
LOTS of FRESH minced garlic
1 cup finely chopped tomatoes
½ to 1 cup finely minced red onion
3 T of curry (remember I LUV curry... so you may not want this much)

Add the greens. Toss them until they are covered in the skillet mixture. Add sweet potatoes and toss well. Using tongs works great for this!

When ready to serve, add chopped cilantro over the top.

Until next time.....
