Recipe for Sweet Potatoes in Peanut Sauce


Tired of the same old sickly-sweet marshmallow-topped yam and sweet potato dishes at holiday dinners? Sweet Potatoes in Peanut Sauce may be just the answer. The sweet potatoes are cooked in a Thai inspired red curry peanut sauce that is slightly spicy, which complements the tender sweet potatoes. This is a dish that even those who think they don’t like sweet potatoes will fall in love with. It is also vegetarian, so if there are vegetarian guests for dinner, they’ll have a special dish to savor.
””
Other vegetables may be added with the sweet potatoes such as haricot vert (petit green beans), sugar snap peas, or snow peas to add extra color. This dish can be made up to two days ahead; let cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate. Reheat over low heat on the stovetop.

6 Servings
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon red curry paste, or more to taste
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 14 oz. can coconut milk
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4" chunks
1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

1 green onion, chopped, for garnish
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large deep saucepan.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion becomes translucent.
  3. Add the curry paste and peanut butter; cook over medium heat, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the coconut milk and mix until well-blended.
  5. Add the sweet potato chunks and sea salt and bring the mixture to a boil; turn down to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 10-20 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with the green onion and serve.


  7. Note: If you like, you can substitute regular curry powder for the red curry paste. Thai green curry paste is also good, but a bit spicier.
