Author Notes

Moroccan inspired Sweet Black Olive Vegan Curry recipe. Made with immune boosting and warming spices like turmeric and ginger, and indispensably nutrient packed sweet potatoes (think vitamins A, C, calcium, and potassium), as well as fiber and protein rich red lentils-this curry will not only last for a weeks (and more) worth of meals, but will leave you with that comforting “stick to your ribs” feeling without anything actually sticking but the nutrients. This one-pot meal requires minimal preparation, about 2 minutes to cut sweet potatoes, and will simmer to unattended perfection while you practice head stands on your kitchen floor.. or do whatever it is you most enjoy. I serve my Sweet Black Olive Curry over ½ cup of brown basmati rice with two tablespoons raw cashews for added crunch.
