Potato Peanut Curry Recipe

• 4 cloves garlic
• One-half 28-ounce can diced tomatoes (14 ounces total)
• 1 cup water
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 pound potatoes
• 2 tablespoons corn or canola oil
• 2 tablespoons tahini
• 2 tablespoons peanut butter
• 1 teaspoon chipotle or cayenne
• 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional but very good)
• 2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves or basil ribbons

1. Mince garlic and put in a small microwave-safe bowl. Set aside. Put tomatoes with their juice, water and salt in a medium pot, but don’t heat yet. This tomato bath will keep the potatoes from turning brown.



2. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes, stirring into pot as you go.

3. Cover pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then simmer on medium-low so mixture barely boils.
