Sweet Potato Curry
If you find a mirepoix mix at the store (diced celery, onion, carrot mix), feel free to use a big cup of that instead of chopping the onion, celery, and carrots in this recipe. You can also find minced ginger and minced garlic in jars so feel free to use those if short on time. This recipe makes a lot but it's a very easy dish to reheat and enjoy again! It gets better the 2nd night!
