¼teaspooncayenne pepper, if you like a little heat
1tablespooncornstarch or arrowroot starch
For the sweet potato crust:
1-2medium sweet potato, sliced into 1/8th inch thick rounds
Olive oil or avocado oil cooking spray
To garnish: Cilantro, green onion & hot sauce
Heat coconut oil in 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add in garlic, onion, carrots and fresh ginger. Stir fry for about 5 minutes until the onions begin to slightly brown. Next, add in yellow curry powder and turmeric and stir for 20 seconds to release flavors.
Add in coconut milk, chickpeas, red bell pepper, soy sauce, salt, and cayenne pepper (if using). Stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Stir in frozen peas and cornstarch/arrowroot starch, cook a few minutes longer, then remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes while you preheat your oven.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place sweet potato rounds in a layer over the top of the curry. Spray the tops of the sweet potato rounds with a little olive oil cooking spray or brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a little fresh ground salt and pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with a little cilantro. Scoop into bowls just like you would a normal pot pie, and enjoy! Serves 4.
