• 2 large leeks, white and pale green parts only
  • 1 large sweet potato, washed and dried
  • 4 tbsp. Gustare Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 2 ½ tbsp. grated ginger root
  • 2 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp. yellow curry powder
  • zest of a lime
  • 1 tsp. Gustare Fleur de Sel, plus more for roasting
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper, plus more for roasting
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 13 ½ oz can coconut milk
  • 13 ½ oz can light coconut milk
  • 13 ½ oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed



Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush sheet tray with Gustare Garlic Olive Oil and set aside.


Slice leeks in half lengthwise. Slice each half into ½ inch thick half moons. Cover slices with cold water, then drain and rinse in a strainer. Repeat 2-3 times to ensure removal of any remnants of soil. Set aside.


Cut sweet potato into ½ inch cubes.


Toss leeks and sweet potatoes in 2 tbsp. Gustare Garlic Olive Oil. Spread onto prepared sheet tray and season with Gustare Fleur de Sel and pepper. Roast 20-25 minutes, or until just tender but not mushy.


Prepare coconut curry while vegetable are roasting. Heat 2 tbsp. Gustare Gustare Olive Oil in sauté pan over medium low heat.


Add garlic, ginger root, cumin, curry, lime zest, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir together to form a paste. Add maple syrup. Stir.


Add coconut milk gradually, stirring constantly. A silicone whisk works perfectly to dissolve and evenly distribute the seasonings.


Bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sauce will reduce and thicken.


Add chickpeas, sweet potatoes and leeks. Stir to combine and coat evenly.


Enjoy over Basmati or brown rice.
