Introduction

This is an easy and delicious one pot meal. The number of servings seems rather weird, but that is how many 2 cup servings we got. I see that the sodium value is pretty high. There is no way to note it when entering nutrition information, but you rinse the chickpeas which lowers the sodium considerably. Of course you can also reduce the amount of salt you add to lower it even further! If you have left over butternut squash that is already cooked it cuts down the recipe time to less than 30 minutes, just skip the first step and proceed with recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients

    1.5 lb Butternut Squash, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    1 med onion, diced
    1 tsp minced Garlic
    1 tsp minced Ginger
    3 Tbsp Curry Powder

    1/2-1 tsp Kosher Salt
    Fresh Pepper, to taste
    8 oz Tomato Sauce
    1 cup Light Coconut Milk

(Test a piece of squash, if not cooked all the way through finish in microwave 2-3 minutes.)
Lower heat to medium, spray pan again and add onions. Cook, stirring occationally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, spices, and salt and stir until onion is evenly coated. Add in tomato sauce, water, and coconut milk and stir to full incorporate.
Add chickpeas and squash, stir to coat. Add kale (you will likely have to do this in 2 batches) and stir to incoporate as much as possible. Put a lid on the pot and let come up to a bubble. Remove lid, stir, and add in rest of kale if necessary. Cook until wilted and fully incorporated.

    Looking for easy vegan recipes. This was very tasty. I tossed all of the ingredients in a crockpot and it came out great. I also used Silk coconut milk found in any grocery store in the milk section. At 90 calories/cup and only one cup in the whole recipe it seemed light enough to me. No problems - 2/18/12

    My whole family liked it. I pureed it to disguise the veggies from my picky kids, and they ate it right up. Very tasty! - 9/10/12

    "graham masala" should be "garam masala" (which is basically an Indian spice mix - different cooks make different mixes) - 11/4/12

    Really delicious! Be sure to chop the kale thoroughly--it doesn't shrink down to nothing like spinach leaves do. Next time I may add some matchstick carrots and green beans. - 11/4/12

    I think 1 cup full fat coconut milk would be worth the calories... light just isn't great.. next time I will try this, as well as tearing the kale into smaller pieces. - 10/21/11
