Fall Vegetable Curry

I’m perfectly away that March is in Spring, but all the “fall vegetables” in this curry - a variation on a Chana Masala theme - are available right now and most of them even in the house.

Fall Vegetables Curry

It’s a recipe that’s delicious, quick to make and given it’s vegetarian, it also makes for a great Friday meal during the time of Lent.


Takes about 15-20 minutes of prep to a total of 25-30 minutes total.

The difference for me was substituting some sweet potatoes with regular potatoes, and the latter take a bit longer to cook.


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced peeled sweet potato (or 1/2 cup sweet and 1/2 cup regular potatoes)
  • 1 cup small cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons Madras curry powder
  • 1/2 cup organic vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt- added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups hot cooked basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt (mix in some carrots and cucumbers for a delicious topping)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup of cashews


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
    Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat.
    Add sweet potato to pan; sauté 3 minutes.
    Decrease heat to medium. Add cauliflower, onion, and curry powder; cook 1 minute, stirring mixture constantly.
    Add broth and next 3 ingredients (through tomatoes); bring to a boil.
    Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender (test the potatoes - they take the longest), stirring occasionally.

Serve over rice and with yogurt. Sprinkle with cilantro and cashews.
