Coconut squash chickpea curry - slowcooker

Submitted by: JUSTYNA7

Introduction

This is such a nice change to my vegetarian curry and a hit with the whole family. Omit the peanut or cashew butter if there are alergy worries and I always leave out the salt because my boulion cube seems salty enough.

Ingredients

    2 cups cubed pelled butternut squash
    2 cups peeled potato
    1 540 ml can of chickpeas drained and rinsed

    1 Tbsp. oil
    1 onion diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 Tbsp. gingerroot minced
    3 Tbsp. mild curry paste

    1 can 400 ml light coconut milk
    1 cup vegetable stock (one boulion cube and one cup water)
    1/4 cup cashew butter or peanut butter (optional)
    1/4 tsp salt (I leave out)

    2 cups packed shredded swiss chard
    1 cup frozen peas

    2 Tablespoons fresh corriander for garnish

Directions

I usually double the recipe as I have a large crockpot and this freezes well. It makes 6-8 servings that are like a thick soup. You could use frozen packaged squash to save preparation time. I chose smooth peanutbutter in the conversion table so adjust it if you use cashew butter. I live in Canada so some of our ingrediants have different standards. When I checked the labels it came to 200 calories per serving and much less salt. Delicious and very nutritious!

1. Combine the squash and potato and chickpeas in slowcooker.

2. Saute the onion, garlic, gingerroot until the onion is yellow (about 7 minutes) and then add curry paste and stir until the mixture is fragrant (about 1 minutes). Add to vegetables.

3. Add coconut milk, stock and nut butter. Turn slow cooker on low and cook covered at least 4 hours until veg. are tender.

4. Stir in swiss chard and peas and cook on high 15 minutes until swis chard is wilted.

5. Sprinkle servings with corriander.
