A baked sweet potato makes the perfect base for a meal in my opinion.   Whether it's a quick lunch and you stuff it with leftover veggies and cheese, a breakfast topped with a scrambled or poached egg and some wilted spinach, or a complete dinner with some sauteed ground turkey and veggies, it all tastes delicious.  It's a bit like a blank canvas, packed with nutrition, that you can build on to make any number of delicious meals.  Since I love sweet potatoes in curry dishes, lately I have been making this simple chickpea and coconut curry to stuff into my sweet potato.  The combination of the sweet potato and coconut milk is enough to get me every time.  Then add some tomatoes, spinach, curry powder, and a hint of sweetness from honey.  I am in every time.  Vegans can use maple syrup or brown sugar instead of the honey.
