Folks, a round of applause please for this slow cooker sweet potato and vegetable curry.

Why? Well it’s my first published slow cooker recipe since I acquired a slow cooker and it’s such a simple recipe too. I know you’re just going to love it as much as Lady Lynne and I do!

All you need to do to make this curry is to prepare the vegetables and then leave them to marinate in the coconut milk overnight. The next day you’ll just need to cook it on low power for 4 – 5 hours, stir in the peas and serve. That really is it!

I’ve got my colleague at work to thank for donating her slow cooker to me, thanks Theresa! 🙂

Yes I could have gone out and easily bought one a long time ago but I didn’t really see the point. I’ve been so used to doing everything in my beloved red casserole pot in the oven, when it comes to slow cooking.

However, now I see what all the slow cooker fuss is about and I love it!

The slow cooker sits on my worktop bubbling away at weekends slowly tenderising tougher cuts of meat for curry dishes and /or making delicious home made stock for my soups. Yes, I know there’s so many other things you can do with a slow cooker but all in good time, I’ve only just started experimenting.

I just hope that Theresa doesn’t now ask for the slow cooker back when she sees this tasty sweet potato and vegetable curry! 😆

You could serve this curry with rice. With some more steamed vegetables like kale. Or as this recipe is such a time saver, whilst its cooking away you could be making your own home made naan bread.

At just 241 calories per serving, this slow cooker sweet potato and vegetable curry is the ultimate healthy veggie curry for helping us all to get right back in shape after all the recent Christmas indulgences.

Right, now that you’ve had enough of my “why you should eat your veggies” rant and in particular this sweet potato and vegetable curry. Let’s look forward to what’s in store next.

So, it’s been such a long time since we’ve had a good old fashioned traditional family bake hasn’t it? Well, I’ll put that right this Thursday with a new Salmon and Spinach Potato Bake recipe if you’ll be so kind as to join me then. 🙂

  1. Hooray for the slow cooker! Like you, I drug my feet for years on the slow cooker. I figured I’ve got some nice cast iron pots and they were working well. But the slow cooker just takes things to a whole new level of easy! And you could even have that thing going while you’re at work…so you walk into dinner already made for you. 🙂 Speaking of dinner, I could go for a bowl of this curry right about now. It’s a cold, rainy day (hey, at least it’s not snowing) here, and a bowl of sweet potato and veggie curry sounds like just the thing I need!

      David, I’m glad that I’m not the only one who was so in love with their pots and pans that they refused to consider trying out a slow cooker! LOL

      But seriously, yes you’re right it really does take things to a whole new level. I’m not quite at the stage where I have the confidence to leave it on for the 12 hours I’m away at work but I’ll get there. I might buy a timer switch that maybe switches it on a bit later.

      Glad you like the recipe. I’m sending virtual bowls of it your way right now! 😉

  2. YES! Slow cookers, curry, potatoes, ah, the goods things have aligned!

  3. This vegetable curry seems like an ultimate lunch recipe, Neil! This dish combines some of my favourite healthy ingredients!

      Hi Agness, I’m really glad you like this and it has some of your favourite healthy ingredients in it! It certainly would make an amazing lunch! 🙂

  4. I have been seeing so many recipes recently which use a slow cooker, and it really sounds like a great appliance to have. I love how easy and effortless it is to use and your recipe sounds amazing Neil. I love curries and this sweet potato and vegetable curry is such a great combination of flavours. Definitely going to be looking out for this amazing appliance.
