Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by a vegetable curry from Cooking Light - I had selected the recipe for our weeknight meal plan but read the reviews after shopping - not so good. So I started with the basic premise and went a little crazy, with delicious results. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread.meganvt01

Serves 6

  • 2 cups sweet potato (peeled) cut into 1/3 inch dice
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower florets - cut into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 14 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  1. Heat the olive oil over medium high in a large skillet. Add the sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes, until the sweet potato begins to brown.
  2. Lower the heat to medium and add the red pepper, curry, cumin, cinnamon, fennel seed, and ginger and cook for 2 minutes, until the mixture is fragrant. Stir occasionally.
  3. Add the cauliflower, onion, broth, garbanzos, tomato, tomato sauce and salt. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until the veggies are just tender. Uncover, add peas, and continue simmering for 5 more minutes to allow the sauce to thicken. Season if necessary.
  4. Serve the curry over rice, top with a dollop of greek yogurt and some cilantro.

Really nice! I subbed coconut oil for the olive oil.

Yum! I added lime zest, spinach, and broccoli and cooked it with a can of coconut milk.

Really good. I replaced the yoghurt by coconut cream and added far less salt than recommended.

Made this last night - it gets better the longer it simmers and sits - then the flavors really develop - can't wait to have the leftovers tonight! I agree with comments that it needs more broth and less salt (used 3/4 tsp). I had it with rice and yogurt and cilantro and without - just as good. Thank you for sharing.

Very good, but we used 1/2 tablespoon of salt.

Our new fave curry. Needed more broth and tomato sauce, but was wonderfully flavorful. I agree, the recipe would be more user-friendly if the ingredients were listed in the order used, otherwise, fabulous.

Whoops-sorry, I guess I didn't read the recipe thoroughly. It might help if you put the ingredients in the order of their use.

What am I supposed to do with the olive oil, red pepper flakes, curry powder, and vegetable broth that the recipe calls for? Those ingredients aren't included in the directions.

Edit function not working properly - should have 2 tablespoons of curry powder.
