Vegetable and Chickpea Curry (Prepared in Crock Pot)



1 tbs evoo
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 cup (1/4-inch-thick) sliced carrots
1 tbs curry powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
3 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 1/2 cups cubed peeled baking potato

6 lemon wedges

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and carrot; cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Add curry powder, sugar, ginger, garlic, and chile; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Place onion mixture in a 5-quart electric slow cooker (crock pot). Stir in chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and next 8 ingredients (through broth). Cover and cook on HIGH 6 hours *NOTE* (mine took 3 hours) or until vegetables are tender. Add spinach and coconut milk; stir until spinach wilts. Serve with lemon wedges.

Yields: 6 servings ( serving size 1 1/3 cups)

Suggestions: Serve over couscous. I used brown rice.

That is a pretty big yield for a recipe -- be sure you have a large crock pot.

It would be worth trying to simplify this to reduce ingredient prep time. Hmmm.

Swampy, I agree! Lots of ingredients, but the prep time really isn't all that bad.

I have an extra large crock pot, which is probably why my recipe cooked in half the time called for.

I've made this before on the stove and it was really yummy. I like making veggie curries and serving them with rice :)
