Curried Sweet Potato Stir Fry

In the mood for something a little different this weekend, I made a curry stir fry.  I used tofu, sweet potatoes, and red peppers.  I know that tofu is not everyone’s favorite… so this recipe would be just as good with chicken.  And for those that are afraid of curry… this would be a good recipe to dip your toe into.  It has great curry flavor, but isn’t too overwhelming.  I think that is what is so great about stir fry… you can always tweak it to what your individual tastes are.

Curried Sweet Potato Stir Fry

Pieces:

  1. one block of tofu, cut into bite sized pieces and dried on towels
  2. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  3. 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
  4. 1 large red pepper, cut into bite sized pieces
  5. one half of an onion, cut into bite sized pieces
  6. 2 tbsp. yellow curry powder
  7. 2 tsp. cinnamon sugar (or 1 tsp. of each)
  8. 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  9. salt and pepper to taste
  10. one half cup dried cranberries

Process:

  1. To prep the tofu… cut into small blocks and set in between two towels for an hour to dry out.
  2. In a large saute pan, add the olive oil and tofu pieces.
  3. Let sit on medium high heat for about 4 minutes…then flip the tofu to brown the other sides.
  4. Add the sweet potatoes, red pepper, onion, curry powder, cinnamon sugar, paprika, and salt and pepper.
  5. Stir every few minutes to make sure that all sides get browned.
  6. When everything is just about tender, add the dried cranberries and stir for the last couple minutes.
  7. Serve hot.  Can also serve over rice.
