Chickpea, Sweet potato and Spinach curry

You can never have enough curry recipes especially ones that are easy, quick and use accessible ingredients. This curry is so tasty and comforting you won’t believe just how simple it is to make at home. I have collaborated with innocent using their dairy free coconut to create this recipe for you guys. The coconut drink is deliciously creamy with only 5 ingredients & no artificial additives, one of the ingredients is citrus fibre which I find really interesting, a natural ingredient giving the drink its creamy texture rather than typical emulsifiers and thickening agents. I love coconut milk not only for curries but overnight oats, porridge, soups and more it’s a really versatile drink and perfect to add to your fridge essentials to tart up recipes.

I have created a video for this recipe just incase you need some extra guidance just head over to my Instagram to have a look . Don’t forget to tag me in your recreations and let me know what you think of the recipe.


Innocent coconut drink is available in Dunnes Stores, Tesco, selected Eurospar, along with select Fresh and Donnybrook Fair outlets.
