  • 1-14 oz can light coconut milk
  • 1 medium sweet potato, about 1 pound, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. gound turmeric

  1. Coat the bottom of a medium saucepan with oil and place over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and translucent. Add garlic and ginger. Cook 1 minute more, until very fragrant.
  2. Add coconut milk, sweet potato, cumin, coriander, turmeric, thyme, allspice, fenugreek, pepper, cinnamon and cayenne. Stir a few times, raise heat and bring to a simmer.
