Eggplant, Sweet Potato, and Chickpea Curry

Food

I was floating through Jamie Oliver’s section on curry (yes, the blessed man has an entire section of curry recipes) and I was inspired to try my own.  Naturally, I decided to add whatever I had in the house, including golden beets, sweet potatoes, and eggplant.  And, because I bake, I had no shortage of chickpeas…!  I’d never used coconut milk in my curry before, but it added a touch of sweetness that I found extremely soul soothing.  This will definitely be a go-to dish for us whenever we are in need of comfort food.
