Curry, Sweet Potato (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 2

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small green pepper (I used a Romanian pepper), seeded and chopped
2 small sweet potatoes (yams), in 1" cubes
1-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 to 2 tablespoons favorite curry powder
1/2 to 3/4 cup raw rice

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and onions, sauté onions until translucent (about 4 minutes), then add garlic and pepper. Sauté one or two minutes, or until fragrant. Add sweet potatoes, and sauté a few moments, until starting to turn fragrant.

Add broth and curry powder, stir and bring to a boil. When boiling, add rice (the amount depends on the rice, from past experience you may have a feel for the rice you are using. This should end up really soupy but not liquid.) Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer 30 to 40 minutes until rice is tender.

Poster's Notes:
I invented this last night. It smelled so good I kept running to taste it in the pot, even while the rice was still raw. I added strips of sautéed chicken breast at the last minute but next time I think I'll leave the chicken out, make it a little spicier, and top it with plain yogurt instead. I also might throw in some peas, just for color contrast. I know combining potatoes and rice seems strange to some but I just loved it and will probably eat it for breakfast tomorrow morning.
