Red Thai Sweet Potato & Mung Beans

Nutrition Info





30 Minutes


A deliciously hot Thai curry with sweet potatoes. We made this one with a store-bought red curry paste but it’ll work especially well with our very own famous Thai Golden Curry Paste!


Make sure the sweet potatoes are nice and soft before adding the other ingredients!

For a milder curry, reduce the amount of curry paste and add a little more coconut milk.


(Makes 1 portion. Check the Meal Plans to see how may portions you should make!)


  • 1 medium Sweet Potato, diced small (about 150 – 200g)
  • 40g (1/4 cup) Red Onion, diced,
  • 30g (2 tbsp) Thai Red Curry Paste, or Thai Golden Curry Paste (click for recipe)
  • 200g (1 cup) Mung Beans, cooked (substitute any other legume)
  • 80g (1/3 cup) Coconut Milk
  • 100g (3.5 cups) Spinach, or other greens
  • 450ml (2 cups) Water
Preparation Method

In a large wok or pan, place the Sweet Potato and Red Onion and 200ml of Water. Cover and simmer on a  medium heat until the Sweet Potato is well cooked and the water is reduced (if the water reduces too early add a little extra).

Add the Curry Paste and 250ml of Water. Stir until the Curry Paste is completely dissolved.

Add the Mung Beans, stir and simmer on a low heat, uncovered, for a further 2 minutes.

Add the Coconut Milk and Greens. Stir thoroughly. Simmer on a low heat until the Greens have wilted. (If the sauce is still too thin, continue to simmer until reduced to the desired consistency.)
