Sweet Potato Stew with Swiss Chard

Ingredients:
2 T. olive oil
2 c. diced yellow onion
1 t. salt
1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes
4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 red Thai or jalapeño pepper minced, with the seeds (adjust to suit your taste)
1 T. fresh ginger
1 t. ground coriander
½ t. turmeric
1 14 oz. can full fat coconut milk
1 bunch of swiss chard (about 4 cups loose), chiffonade
¼ c. cilantro
Squeeze of lime, for garnish

To prepare:
In a large saucepan, warm the oil over medium heat, then add the onion and a bit of salt. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato, garlic, pepper, ginger, and spices and sauté for another minute or two. Add 2 cups of water, the coconut milk, and a bit more salt. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, add the chard, and continue cooking for 8-10 minutes or until the chard is tender. Thin the stew with water if it seems too thick. Top with cilantro if desired and spoon over rice, quinoa, or other cooked grain of your choice.

This is scrumptious served with Herbed Quinoa Pilaf, Tofu Bites or some fried tempeh. It’s equally wonderful served with a side of cornbread.
