Split Pea Sweet Potato Curry recipe.

Burst Split Pea Sweet Potato Curry infused with coriander, mango, caraway and turmeric and topped with dills.

Tantalise your tastebuds. And, pamper your mouth.

This dish will burst your belief that vegan food can’t be simple to rustle together.

Make this:

  • When you fancy a gorgeous lush curry that won’t break the bank as you count your pennies walking round the supermarket aisles
  • When you’ve got games night with the gang and a quick meal that will quench those hunger pangs is much needed
  • When it’s cold outside and you need a hearty meal that’ll soon warm you up

Split Pea Sweet Potato Curry was inspired when I had been living in Portugal and had been living frugally having a mortgage over in the UK and rented accommodation in Portugal; a nourishing wholesome meal that I could make last for days and still satiate my appetite. Split peas are high in protein which is a must for vegans.

This Curry is vegan.
