Tofu Green Curry with Sweet Potato and Spinach

This curry dish is so incredibly flavorful and celebrates fall flavors. A full can of pumpkin puree is added to the sauce which provides a wonderful creaminess and helps to thicken it (and it adds a boatload of fiber and vitamin A!). The green curry paste I used is slightly spicy, so if you prefer a milder one, simply swap in red or yellow curry paste. Serve this with brown rice, quinoa or naan flatbread.

  1. Melt oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sweet potatoes and saute for 3 minutes, stirring often.

2. Stir in curry paste and cook for 1 minute.

3. Add coconut milk, pumpkin puree, broth, lime juice, brown sugar and tamari (or fish sauce). Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook on low for 20 minutes.

4. Add spinach and tofu and stir until the spinach is wilted. Ladle into bowls and garnish with peanuts.
