Jessica Sepel (pictured), from Sydney, said adding a few tablespoons of almond butter to your coconut milk and tomato paste makes the curry “life-changing” and “most importantly delicious.”
To make the curry, Jessica said you’ll need some sweet potato, coconut milk, tomato paste, almond butter, coconut oil, olive oil, garlic, coriander, and curry powder.
Jessica also uses chickpeas, vegetable stock, and baby spinach, but said you can choose your protein form, as she sometimes makes the dish with chicken as well.
“This wonderfully fragrant vegan curry is packed with vegetable protein from the chickpeas and almond butter,” she said.
“In addition, it contains quality fats, whole carbohydrates and is seasoned with spices and herbs for a nutritious, flavorful dish.”

Then add the coconut and almond butter mixture to the pan, along with the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for five minutes.
