Thermomix curry recipe: Sweet potato, spinach and chickpea – Gluten free, Dairy free and Vegan

As you might have noticed by now, we love a good Thermomix curry in this house (click here for my other curry recipes).

Our curries are (always) most of the time home made of course. That way we know exactly what’s in it. It is a lot cheaper than a take away and it’s usually a doddle to make. In other words it’s the ultimate fakeaway.

Serve your curry in these stunning copper dishes and you have the ultimate fakeaway!

I know curry can be a very intimidating thing to attempt but once you have all the ingredients, it really is not that complicated.

Honestly – just give this sweet potato, spinach and chickpea curry Thermomix recipe a go. You will not be disappointed.

If you’re more experienced in the curry making department, I am sure you will be equally as pleased by the awesomeness of this recipe. It’s full of flavours, vegetarian (even vegan) and pretty cheap to boot.

With the added sweetness of sweet potato, this Thermomix curry recipe is delicious for kids of all ages too, even babies.

This recipe is very versatile – replace the spinach with thinly sliced red peppers, add shredded carrots or green beans or even top with cashew nuts to add even more flavours.

Our family love this sweet potato, spinach and chickpea curry Thermomix recipe and we hope yours will do too. Please comment below and tell us how you got on. I’d love to see your pictures too.

Serve with yoghurt and naan bread. Add however much chilli you require / can tolerate / enjoy!
