Thai Sweet Potato Curry

This gently spicy dish packs a healthy dose of vitamin A, folate and antioxidants, thanks to all of the colourful vegetables. A little bit of tofu makes a nice protein source, and cooking it in the sauce from the beginning gives it time to absorb the delicious curry flavours.
