Sweet Potato + Coconut Butter + Curry Powder

Sweet Potato + Coconut Butter + Curry Powder //shutterbean

In my weekly meal prep, I like to roast a few sweet potatoes for the week. Sometimes I chop up sweet potatoes to put in salads or mash them up to go into pancakes. Sometimes I just eat them standing in front of the fridge on a Monday night while I’m figuring out what to make for dinner and sometimes I like to heat them up with a little coconut butter and a sprinkle of curry powder.  Coconut oil can be substituted for the coconut butter and toasted coconut flakes are a great addition (I didn’t have any at the time. WOMP WOMP).  I love the salty/sweetness of this combination and the curry powder gives it a little savory oomph.

    This works great with my effort to drop some lb’s this January! Did you ever end up trying the Whole 30? If so, let us know how it goes/went. (I only made it to day 5…boo hoo.)

    holy smokes, this sounds fantastic. i happen to have a zillion sweet potatoes that i need to use up too. hello, dinner.

    Love the meal prep posts and this is a great way to ‘use up’ the sweet potatoes. My new favorite way to eat them is roasted, chopped over a spinach salad with a fried egg on top. My new fall back dinner.

    I just recently tried curry on my sweet potato and it was DA BOMB. Now to try the coconut oil/butter. And maybe a sprinkle of crispy bacon. = )

    Ooh,I might have this for supper tonight…I have all the things! And I love your other ideas for them (in salad and pancakes). I love ALL your ideas! 🙂

    I love sweet potatoes–cubed, roasted, and sprinkled with a bit of cumin is my favorite! What is the difference between coconut oil and coconut butter? Do you have a brand of coconut butter you prefer?

  • Laura

    this is amazing.

    Dear god this sounds INCREDIBLE. I had a sweet potato for dinner, and I’m so sad I didn’t see this first! 🙁 next time…

    Have I told you lately how much I love your snacks?! Such genius combinations! I’ve been doing sweet potatoes + goat cheese, but the goat cheese has to have herbs and lavender in it 🙂

  • Maggie

    This sounds really really tasty and is about to become a favorite, I just know it…I love coconut butter, but am often at a loss about how to use it without its flavor getting lost in the mix…I end up limiting it to breakfast toast…now I get to enjoy it for dinner in a super easy way. Thank you!

    I love sweet potato chunks in my salad too. This combo looks amazing! I’m all about adding curry powder to everything.

    Lovely combo! I sometimes eat my roasted sweet potatoes w burrata and cranberry sauce. So heavenly.
