There’s nothing like a warm, delicious curry for some flavorful comfort food! Curry is an incredibly versatile dish that can easily be made with a protein or vegetable-based for a healthy and nourishing meal.

This curry is made with sweet potato and cauliflower and simmered in a rich curry sauce. It tastes amazing serve with basmati rice, chickpeas, or on its own.

The Ingredients for the Sweet Potato Cauliflower Curry

  • Onion & ginger
  • Sweet potato 
  • Cauliflower
  • Coconut milk. I like to use the native forest simple variety in a can.
  • Canned diced tomato. Or you can use nomato sauce to keep it AIP.
  • Turmeric & curry paste. Simply sub more turmeric for AIP.
  • Cilantro and lime

How to make Sweet Potato Cauliflower Curry

  • Saute the vegetables: Using a large, deep pan, heat the avocado oil over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger and saute for 3-4 minutes or until the onion is slightly translucent. Add the sweet potato and cauliflower and saute.
  • Add the curry ingredients: Pour in the coconut milk, diced tomato, turmeric, curry, salt and pepper, and stir to combine and coat the vegetables.
  • Simmer: Bring to a low simmer and cover.  Remove the lid from the pan and allow to simmer for another 5 minutes. Once the liquid is reduced and the vegetables are soft, remove from the heat. Serve topped with cilantro and lime wedges.

How do you make this recipe AIP friendly?

Nightshade ingredients like curry paste and tomato aren’t AIP friendly, but you can swap out the tomato for nomato sauce and use a bit more turmeric and ginger in place of curry paste. Yes, it does change the flavor and doesn’t taste exactly like a normal curry… but it’s still a delicious substitute if you don’t eat nightshades!

Can you add a protein to this meal?

Sure! You can add chicken either on the side, or stir it into the curry with a bit of extra sauce.

What can you serve this curry with?

  • Basmati rice
  • Chickpeas
  • Quinoa
  • Or cauliflower rice to keep it paleo, whole30 & AIP
