Vegan Dutch Oven Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry




Introduction: Vegan Dutch Oven Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry

Colorful and hearty, this simple dish is perfect to make in large batches to last you the week.

What you'll need:

  • Dutch oven
  • 7 small sweet potatoes
  • 14 ounces of sliced black olives
  • 1.5 cups of green lentils
  • 28 ounces of coconut milk
  • 28 ounces of diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons of ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger

Step 1: Assemble and Prepare the Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes. Rinse and drain the lentils.

Step 2: Warm the Mixture

Place the coconut milk, tomatoes, ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, and ground ginger into the Dutch Oven and heat on medium-high heat until the mixture begins to bubble.

Step 3: Add the Remaining Ingredients

Once the mixture has started to bubble, add the remaining ingredients: sweet potatoes, lentils, and olives.

Step 4: Place the Dutch Oven in the Oven

Put the lid on the Dutch Oven and place it in the 350 degree oven for 60 minutes.

Step 5: Prepare the Rice

About 30 minutes after placing the Dutch Oven in the oven, prepare the rice so the two finish cooking at the same time.

Step 6: Remove the Curry From the Oven

Once the sweet potatoes are soft, remove the curry from the oven.

Step 7: Enjoy

Serve immediately and store any leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.

You mentioned large batches.
How long will it keep in the refrigerator?
This sounds great, just not a huge olive fan.
Thank you for making clear and easy instructions.
