Yam and Chard Curry

Recipe by luvcookn

This recipe is from Hollyhock (a retreat). They have some amazing recipes. The yams here are the orange ones. In some places they are called sweet potatoes. Why the confusion???? I haven't a clue.

This is fabulous! I grow a lot of chard (it's hardier than spinach) so am always looking for different ways to serve it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In dutch oven, saute onions, jalapeno, garlic and ginger in oil, until onions are transparent.
  2. Stir in curry powder and yams.
  3. Reduce heat and cover to allow yams to simmer until they are very soft, stirring often to avoid sticking.
  4. Stir in chard -- 2 cups at a time and cover again until just wilted.
  5. Season with salt and add lemon juice just before serving.
  6. Enjoy!
