Gingered Sweet Potatoes

The sweet potato’s orange color is a sign of its rich stores of beta carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A. But this tuber is no one-trick pony: Sweets also supply fiber, vitamins and minerals.

3 tbsp coconut oil

1 onion, diced

1 tbsp ground ginger

1 tbsp curry powder

1 can (14 oz) coconut milk

1 large sweet potato, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup chopped pineapple

1 tbsp tamari sauce

1 tsp salt

1. Heat coconut oil in a large pan and sauté onion until tender. Mix in ginger and curry powder, and cook another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
2. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 25–30 minutes, until sweet potatoes are soft but still firm enough to keep their shape.
