Easy Vegan Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry

This curry is dairy free, vegan and bursting with flavour and yumness. It’s also very simple to throw together and makes the perfect healthy comfort dish.

Oh My Gosh! Perfection in a bowl. I could seriously eat this every single day.

I love both sweet potato and chickpeas and together they make a food power couple. They are both  so versatile, delicious and chock full of nutrients. I love how the two marry together beautifully; the sweetness and creaminess from the sweet potatoes and the nuttiness from the chickpeas.

This easy curry is truly heart-warming with the perfect balance of spice. I have made it almost every week in the last two months, it’s that good.
