    I cooked the sweet potato and spinach curry with rice from the SW mag yesterday and it was fantastic, but the portions were huge and I mean huge. I did it exactly to the recipe and it would have easily fed 6 people generously. Does anyone else find the SW recipes are generous in serving sizes, I'm not complaining but this one was excessive even for a greedy gutts like me lol.

    I find the whole SW diet is huge on food, I'd never have thought that I would be losing weight eating what I do and it is still a 'diet' I love SW.

    I would like the curry recipe too please. Thank you. X

    I have made this too its Lush, I found the portion sizes big but my OH eats much more then me so it evens its self out.

    I have frozen the rest of the coconut milk down in 4oz portions as well for next time. (I hate waste)

    I love the fact that the portions are huge, I usually cook half quantities and it still makes a lunch leftover portion, I'm a greedy piggy too!!
    I get very cross when using other recipes that I cook it to "serve 4" and it only serves the two of us!

    Hooray for SW!

    Hi Ya,

    Just wanted to say thank you for posting this receipe, as a newbie I was excited to find good tasty recipes to make sure I start on the right track rather then just eating the easy options like pasta and potatoes..If this is going to be a change of eating and lifestyle for me then I may aswell go the whole hog and learn to cook from scratch rather than ready made jars!!...It was gorgeous. I think Next time I will use half spinach and half chicken as a hex and try not to be such a clever clogs and put chilli powder in too...!!! Hot hot hot :), Garlic &/or ginger would be a good addition too...thanx again!!!
