Paleo Thai Coconut Curry. (Gluten/ Grain/ Dairy/ Egg Free)

Have I ever mentioned how much I love thai food? I think I like it just as much as Chinese food. You cant go wrong using ingredients like basil, ginger and garlic. In this recipe I combine curry; a creamy, spicy sauce with the sweetness of sweet potatoes!  Seriously a treat!

 I have you use two pans so that while the sweet potatoes are cooking you can get the rest of the ingredients going. This makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal. You might even have your family believing you slaved over a hot stove all night! That might even convince someone to take care of those dishes for you!!

PS. I use a Paderno Spiralizer to make my sweet potato noodles, and use the smallest blade!
