I'll be honest, lately I've been so busy and tired that the last thing I've wanted to do is a blog post (more work goes into it than you might think!). Any spare moment to just chill I did. ...damn I've missed this though! I think this recipe is perfect redemption - plus it's inspired by suggestions from friends which makes it even better!
Can you guess where I shopped this morning? You probablyyy guessed correctly...the farmers market! I bought this sweet potato (below) because it's shape was entertaining to me. I mean doesn't it look cool?! When I got home I decided to post a picture of it on my Instagram, casually asking what I should make with it.
Luckily, two friends had ideas that ultimately inspired me! The first friend, Kevin, suggested curry sweet potato fries. The second friend, Lauren, suggested a Smitten Kitchen recipe with sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and yogurt sauce. That in combination with finding an eggplant in my fridge (that I had totally forgotten about buying earlier in the week) was all the inspiration I needed!
As I write this I am currently helping myself to a plateful. It's spicy, sweet, tangy, and aromatic. Seriously love the flavors and sensations happening in my mouth right now. I hope that you do too when you eat it!

I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
