1 cup vegetable stock
2 handfuls of fresh spinach

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare all the vegetables.

3. Then add cumin and ground coriander, and stir together. Cook for about 2 minutes.
4. Add the sundried tomatoes, peanut butter, water, veg stock and coconut milk. Stir together then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 10 minutes before blending to a smooth sauce.
5. Bring a pan of salted water to a boil and add the sweet potato, parboiling for 4 mins. (Be careful not to overcook or this will turn into a mashed potato curry!)
6. Add the parboiled sweet potato and chickpeas to the peanut sauce and stir. Simmer for 10 mins. Check the potato is cooked through.
7. If using spinach, add to the pot, stir, then cover. Continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
