    This turned out great. Next time I will add more red pepper flakes because it could use more heat.

    Yummo! I used pistachio milk (homemade) instead of coconut milk to avoid saturated fats...

    Upped the quantities of the spices and used coconut cream instead of coconut milk. Turned out great!

    It was ok I followed the directions to the T and it was just lacking flavor.

    I had bok choy to use, so I subbed that instead of the spinach. I put it in the IP at the same time as the sweet potatoes. Maybe I made my sweet potato pieces bigger, but I had to cook mine a little longer than the 2 minutes with QR. I did an additional 1 min, QR after and they were perfect! I imagine if I would have let it natural release for a bit the first time I would have achieved the same results.

    As long as you do the food prep beforehand, I love finding new recipes for the instant pot! We used an entire can of coconut milk (a 13.5oz can is just over 1.5cups) and definitely added chickpeas. Was incredibly easy to follow directions and very tasty. Looking forward to making it again.

    Good, but I’ve used the worst substitute for coconut milk possible, cream... next time I will try if I can tolerate coconut milk or will try something else..
    Needs more liquid but the flavor is great. I’ll probably double the coconut milk and spices next time.
