  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large stalks celery diced
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 quart vegetable broth
  • 4 cups baby spinach or baby kale
  • 3 tablespoons dried cherries chopped
  • 4 tablespoons toasted cashews chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey optional, for serving


  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the celery and onion. Cook until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, rice, curry powder, and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the rice is soft, 40-45 minutes. Add the baby spinach or kale and dried cherries. Cook for 30 seconds then remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Portion into serving bowls. Garnish with cashews and a drizzle of honey, if desired.
