Sweep the Fridge Curry

This is a recipe that I use that actually changes all the time.

This is what I call my “Sweep the Fridge Curry”

I am on my journey to reduce my environmental impact. One of the ways I am trying to do this is to eliminate all possible food waste. I call this my sweep the fridge curry because when I make it i pull out all the foods in my fridge and use them to make a delicious curry.

For this episode of sweep the fridge curry the ingredients, this is what I did.


  1. 1 cup soaked chickpeas (I soak them overnight)
  2. I large sweet potato diced
  3. 1 cup frozen corn (peas are amazing too!)
  4. 1 diced pepper
  5. 1.5 cups vegetable broth
  6. 3 tbsp curry powder
  7. 2 teaspoons cumin
  8. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  9. 1 tbsp minced ginger
  10. 1 can coconut milk

I threw everything but the coconut milk into my crock pot and cooked it on low for 8 hours (this is great for keeping the heat down in your place!)

30 minutes before I was ready to eat, I mixed in the coconut milk!

Served this on a bed of fresh garlic basamti rice (cooked in vegetable broth and garlic for extra flavour) and some pan friend tortillas (as I had no naan in my fridge and wanted some warm bread).

With this recipe you can use any vegetables you like – since potatoes are a great base for curry I always make sure to start with a potato base but the sky really is the limit!
