Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 3 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 13.5 oz. coconut milk 1 can
  • 1 1/2 cups farro rinsed
  • 2 cups spinach or more
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Then, add the curry paste, curry powder and sugar and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Add the vegetable broth, coconut milk and farro and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the sweet potato. You can do this any way you'd like, but personally, I like microwaving the sweet potato because it's fastest! Then, add the sweet potato and almond milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Remove lid from the skillet then pour in the blended sweet potato. Last, stir in the spinach and add salt and pepper to taste.
