Who needs a white potato when a sweet potato makes this curry recipe twice as tasty and twice as healthy!

Curry adds amazing flavor and zip to any dish, but the fact that it offers fabulous health benefits makes this seasoning a total win. The yellow that you find in curry is from turmeric which contains curcumin. This dish boasts both spices: curry and turmeric.

Curcumin is a member of the ginger family and has been heralded through the centuries as an anti-inflammatory that rivals all those over-the-counter anti-inflammatories you can buy at your local pharmacy. Curcumin also kills bacteria and can lower your cholesterol! Curcumin’s ability to reduce swelling makes it a great addition to anyone’s spice cabinet and definitely a perfect addition to this dish.
