    1. Preheat oven to 200 c / Gas 6.
    2. Place sweet potatoes cut-side down on a baking tray. Coat with 1 teaspoon oil and a pinch of salt.
    3. Roast potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, turning halfway through, about 25 minutes.
    4. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, garlic, red curry paste, ginger and lemon zest. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
    5. Stir chickpeas into the pot. Increase heat to high; cook until chickpeas start to turn golden and are coated with the onion mixture. Pour in lemon juice, coconut milk and 1 teaspoon salt. Heat until simmering; reduce heat and cook until flavours combine, about 10 minutes. Stir in kale, 1 handful at a time, until wilted, about 5 minutes.
    6. Serve chickpea mixture over roasted sweet potatoes.

    This was delicious! I was able to make it exactly as listed and would make no changes. Kale is NOT a favourite but removing the spine before chopping made it easier to eat. Definitely a keeper.  -  08 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
