There is something just so comforting about a big bowl of vegetables in a delicious sauce.  One of my favorite dishes to make when I’m in dire need of vegetables is curry.  My Squash & Vegetable Curry is a hearty dish packed with delicious Indian spices and vegetables.  Roasted butternut squash, chickpeas, baby spinach, and cauliflower coated in a decadent tomato curry sauce.  This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and two cups is 3 SmartPoints.

 

Vegetable curry is one of my go-to dishes to make, especially in the fall and winter months.  Butternut squash is by far my favorite fall/winter vegetable so I’m always looking for recipes to make with this squash.  What I love about this vegetable is not only the nutritional value, but it’s a super versatile vegetable.  Just like cauliflower, you can use butternut squash in place of so many dishes that call for potatoes.  Butternut squash also takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with!

 

This vegetable curry is packed with tons of veggies and cooked in a delicious, rich tomato curry sauce.  To start, peel butternut squash, remove the seeds, and dice into small pieces (about ½ inch cubes).  If you are lucky enough to find pre-diced butternut squash at your local grocery store, I’m super jealous of you!  You can use that instead of peeling your own.  Next, remove the stems and leaves from a medium size cauliflower then cut into small florets.  Dice onion and garlic then get to cooking!

Heat a large pot over medium heat and sauté onion for 5 minutes until tender.  Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.  Add tomato paste, curry powder, garam masala, ginger, and ground coriander.  Mix and let the spices cook for a few minutes.  Cooking the spices really helps to release their flavor!  Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and vegetable broth.
