Sweet Potato Stew Recipe

When I think about my favorite vegan recipes, this one comes to mind. It's a creamy, hearty stew with a unique mix of flavors. I never would have thought to put onion, apple, chili pepper, sweet potatoes, and coconut milk together. But it's genius!

This is a 1-pot meal, and pretty much a "throw-everything-in-the-pot-at-once" meal, too. Makes it easy. Not too much standing around cooking.

1-Pot Meal: Sweet Potato Stew #vegan


Vegan Sweet Potato Stew

prep time: 10 min | cook time: 35 min
total time: 45 min


Vegan Sweet Potato Stew 2 large sweet potatoes (keep skins intact), cubed
1 apple, cubed
1 red onion, chopped
1 green chili pepper, chopped
3 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk + 1 can of water
2 c vegetable stock
optional: cilantro for garnish


  1. Chop sweet potatoes, apple, onion, pepper and add all into a big stock pot.
  2. Saute over medium heat while you add curry powder and ginger. Stir and saute for a few minutes while the onion gets soft.
  3. Add entire can of coconut milk + 1 can of water and 2 c vegetable stock.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer (half-covered) for about 30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft.
  5. When potatoes are soft, mash up about half the soup with your stirrer to make it thick and creamy. Top with cilantro for serving, if you wish.


  • If you don't like spicy, choose a mild green chili pepper like poblano. For spicier, add an extra chili and make it a jalapeƱo!
  • For even creamier soup, blend it with an immersion blender or regular blender.
  • Based on this recipe.
