Meatless Monday Recipe: Kale, White Bean & Sweet Potato Korma

Happy Meatless Monday and happy February!

Today I wanted to share another recipe from my intern Alexandra’s plant based nutrition and recipe website (and one of her absolute favorite meals): Kale, White Bean & Sweet Potato Korma. Her curry is not only packed with warming and nourishing spices and  vegetables, but belly filling protein and fiber to leave you feeling satisfied. This simple recipe only requires about 10 minutes of active cooking time and will simmer to perfection without tying you to the kitchen. Feel free to add any seasonal vegetables you have laying around, don’t feel constrained by the listed ingredients!

This recipe should make more than enough curry for 6 hungry eaters. I love to serve mine over quinoa or brown basmati rice with thick sliced avocado on top for additional protein. Leftovers are even better the second day (Meatless Tuesday) and also freeze and defrost easily.

  1. Should it be 1 can of coconut milk? And coconut oil instead of olive oil?

    • Hi Jess,

      Thanks for catching my type-o! I have made an edit. It is 1 can of coconut milk and either coconut or olive oil (coconut is preferred, but olive oil would be fine as well).

      • Thanks! I’m making this tonight. Sounds delish!
