Zucchini and Sweet Potato Curry with Mint Cilantro Chutney

Zucchini and Sweet Potato Curry

We loved this hearty vegetarian dish! It is so flavorful and went well with Jasmine rice, but you could easily serve with brown rice too. Be sure to serve with a cooking mint infusion!


3 tablespoons coconut oil

4 teaspoons curry powder

1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala

2 onions, chopped or 1/2 cup dried chopped onions

12 ounces sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 serrano or jalapeno pepper, chopped finely

1 tablespoons tomato paste

1 pound chopped zucchini

8 ounces green beans fresh or frozen

Heat the coconut oil in a large dutch oven on medium heat. Add the curry, garam masala, onions, potatoes, garlic, serrano pepper, ginger and tomato paste until fragrant. Add the zucchini and green beans. Add the water, coconut milk, pureed tomatoes and garbonzo beans if using. Simmer covered until the potatoes are softened. Make the cilantro mint chutney.
