Serve it over cauliflower rice or a handful greens for a delicious Whole30 option and an easy way to add in more veggies.
My favorite way to serve Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chicken Curry is over a bed of sautéed cauliflower rice. It’s a great way to sneak in more veggies. I’ve also served it over a bed of greens when I didn’t have cauliflower rice on hand. If not on a Whole30, feel free to serve it over white or brown rice if you wish! And don’t forget to top with roasted cashews for added crunch and fresh cilantro.
For the love of curry – a must try flavor!
Curry is a favorite flavor of mine. So much that we have shared several curry inspired recipes on the blog such as: Curry Egg Salad, Cauliflower Curry Hummus, Instant Pot Lamb Curry, and Curry Chicken Salad. Yeah, I like curry! I think some people are a little hesitant in trying it because they’re just not sure what to expect, but I highly recommend you do. If you don’t want to purchase a whole jar of it, head to your local food co-op or Whole Foods and purchase just what you need in bulk.
