Sweet Potato Coconut Curry “Vegan”

I am part of a Vegetarian Wholefoods Group on Facebook & one of the group members posted a recipe for Sweet Potato Coconut Curry, she said her toddle loved it! So I googled some recipes on Pinterest (click here to view the one I went off of) and decided to use that as the outline for my own creation. I was so impressed with the prep time, the cooking method & most of all I was so impressed that once my 4 year old toddler son got one taste of the Sweet Potato Coconut Curry he started devouring his entire portion!

Threw in onions, broccoli & cauliflower.
Waited a minute or two & threw in the rest of veggies.
Sprinkled in the spices (not using too much of anyone so as not to over power)
Added the wine, soy sauce & honey
Hmmm… it’s  a little too watery… okay I’ll add some Organic Arrow Root Powder (this acts as a thickener just like corn starch but with out all those Nasty GMO’s)
