Ingredients

    1 T canola oil
    2 c carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1 onion, sliced
    3 garlic cloves, sliced
    2 T curry powder
    1/2 t cayenne pepper
    1/2 t turmeric
    4-5 Yukon Gold or red potatoes, quartered
    8 oz. green beans, fresh or frozen
    3 cups chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    1 c tomatoes, diced
    2 c vegetable stock
    1/2 c peas, frozen
    1/2 c light coconut milk

Tips

You can also add shrimp during the last 20 minutes of cooking. If the dish is a little too spicy for the kids, add 1 Tablespoon of plain yogurt to their serving. Serve with a glass of milk and a cucumber salad.


Directions

Heat oil in a saute pan until moderately hot. Add carrots and onion; saute 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and spices to the pan. Continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the spices become fragrant. Remove vegetables from the saute pan and transfer to a slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients, except for the peas and coconut milk. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 5 1/2 hours. Add peas and coconut milk and continue to cook for 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.

    This is one of my favorite meals ever. I like to add quinoa or mung beans for a complete protein boost. It also adds a nice texture because with all the potatoes and beans it can be a bit mushy. Also good with zucchini or butternut squash. - 6/9/11

  • Assuming the bay leaf goes into the crock pot along with all the other things at the start. Along with others, I'd appreciate knowing how much is 1/9th of the recipe so that I can measure accurately for my tracker. Thanks! (Chef Meg has an almost identical recipe here on SP.) - 12/9/14

  • I love vegetable curry and this was easy to make. I added other root vegetables and the parsnips make the dish. - 9/29/14

  • This was great! I didn't have vegetable stock on hand so I substituted Swanson's chicken broth (I think Cook's Illus. likes that one). Larger sized frozen shrimp added a nice texture. Cooked on high for appr 2 hrs. Served over quinoa. Thanks for sharing. - 9/30/13

  • This was absolutely delicious! I used the russet potatoes that we already had at the house and cooked it for about 3 hours on high instead of 5.5 on low because I waited too long to start cooking it, but it was still delicious. I'll definitely be making this again! :) - 11/30/12

  • This was a big hit tonight. I added shrimp and had to substitute zucchini for the green beans due to an allergy.
    also added a bay leaf even though list of ingredients did not call for it. served it with whole wheat naan. My husband, the meat and potatoes guy gave it an a+. Yea! - 9/30/11

  • Tastes good- I didn't understand about the bay leaf. (Never said to put one in- or when). I made it without Bay leaf and it was good .
    Used the hint about serving with yogurt- yummy ! - 9/14/11

    Made this for a potluck with a group of friends. It was a hit. I cut the potatoes in chunks about 3/4 inch square, added another 1/2 tbl curry, doubled the tumeric, used 2 bay leaves, a 1/2 tsp cumin, and a handful of coarsely chopped fresh Spinach leaves with the stems removed, about 1.5 inch. - 11/25/10
