Pressure Cooker Thai Sweet Potato and Kale Chickpea Curry

A flavorful red Thai curry that’s easy and quick thanks to a pressure cooker! Simple plant based protein and colorful vegetables give this curry all the nutrients for a well balanced meal.

Pressure Cooker Thai Sweet Potato and Kale Chickpea Curry

I love Thai curries, but sometimes you just want to set it and forget it – and this curry is exactly that, thanks to the pressure cooker. Here, you just stir the aromatics on Sauté function to set the flavor and tone for the curry and then you dump the rest of the ingredients in, add the kale at the very end, and there you have an easy curry made in under 30 minutes.

While the curry cooks, you can prepare whatever grain you’d like to serve it with (if you’re using a grain) and I love brown rice or quinoa here, because they both soak up the flavors very well.

This curry is definitely soupier and not thick like some other curries, so keep that in mind when you’re picking how to serve it – it could actually be served as a curry soup!

You can definitely make some swaps here, add some tofu or another protein. You could add some bell peppers, substitute butternut squash for sweet potato, or even use a green curry paste instead of a red one.

This curry is meal prep friendly and you may already have all the ingredients on hand to make it.

Made this tonight. Couldn’t find red curry paste, so I used yellow. Still very delicious!
Meaghan says:
Great substitute!
Contessa says:
How much garlic do you use? You mention adding garlic in the cooking instructions, but I don't see it in the ingredients list.
Meaghan says:
Great catch! 2 garlic cloves!
Elaine says:
It's Sunday night, and I just made this for quick lunches this week. It is so good! I am now excited for lunch time this week. It was easy to make while I was cooking dinner, so this will go in my regular cool weather rotation.
Becca says:
This looks amazing! If I wanted to add boneless skinless chicken breasts (fresh, not frozen), how would you adjust cooking time?
Meaghan says:
We haven't given that a try! We suggest just experimenting. Let us know if you give it a go, we'd love to hear!

and since we all appreciate a good lu review, he thought these were buffalo chicken wraps when I first served them to him! 😜 ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
