POM Wonderful BBQ Curry & Sweet Potato

Happy Friday!! 

I rarely do this, but want to start more!! Here are some fantastic giveaways happenin': 

Barefoot Angie Bee's giving away a barefoot running book till 5/20! 
Julie at Julie's Running Blog is having her FIRST giveaway! 

For the next 4 Fridays (May) I am going to be posting a recipe using POM Wonderful, Pomegranate Juice! They thoughtfully sent me some POM to work into some new recipes or even some of their own, there are a bunch on their site here.  

I am excited because I created this myself! I wanted to have curry and sweet potato, but wanted to try out the POM too! I decided to make a "sauce from the POM, sauteed onions and curry powder, it was awesome: 

For one serving: 
1/2 sweet potato
2 T. olive oil (split in 2)
sea salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic

1/2 Cup POM Wonderful
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 C. chopped, sauteed onions
1/2 teaspoon flour

I started by drizzling the sweet potato in 1T.  EVOO (for shizzle!) and 3 pinches of sea salt! I roasted them at about 400 degrees for 20 min or so. with about 5 min left, I tossed a little chopped garlic on top!  

With the other Table spoon of EVOO, I sauteed the onions till slightly golden & added 1/4 cup of the POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice. The burner is about on medium and can be turned down a pinch from there when you pour the POM in. (from like 5-4!)

I sprinkled in 1/4 teaspoon of curry powder and then slowly added in the remaining 1/4 Cup of POM juice as it simmered. 

I set it on low and then added 1/2 teaspoon flour just to help it thicken. Of course as it cools, it thickens also, you could probably use 1/4 teaspoon flour for a thinner sauce to drizzle or NO flour for a very saucy, sauce! Mine ended up being a nice thick "BBQ" curry sauce and it was SO yummy!! 

I put the roasted sweet potatoes and POM BBQ curry with onions on top of a bed of spinach and enjoyed with some chips and salsa! 

Thanks to POM Wonderful for sending me the goods to experiment with!! 
What is your favorite recipe that you created?? 
Hope your weekend is great!!

Oh how I love POM! Very interesting recipe!

I haven't had too much creativity in the area of cooking. I kinda stink at that.

I wish I had more time to be kitchen-creative. Maybe some day soon I will.
