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
In This Recipe
  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.

After spending years in school while working full time, I'm happy to finally have my evenings pursuing my other passion, cooking! I have a 4 year old boy and a husband that are both adventurous eaters and supportive tasters. I spend a good bit of my vacation travel preparation researching local and regional foods and my friends all make fun of my food obsession. I've always been pretty confident with my techniques cooking from recipes but I am enjoying Food52's challenge of putting those techniques to work for my own versions of my favorite foods. I love to learn and the group of people that contribute to this site are a great resource. As an Annapolis native, I love to cook with our local produce and seafood whenever possible. I try to support our community of fisherman, farmers, other food producers and chefs as much as possible.
