Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry with Chickpeas is a perfect recipe for a busy week night. It is warm, comforting and packed with nutrients.
The recipe will work with just about any vegetables you have on hand.
I make this dish all the time and rarely make it with the same ingredients twice for that very reason! This is a great addition to my collection of crock pot recipes.
Nutritious Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry is Flavorful and Inviting.
Crock pot meals make things so easy in the kitchen. How do your slow cooker meals end up? If you are not satisfied with your results, you may be making one of these crock pot mistakes.
The reason I fell in love with this recipe is because it is so versatile. Also, my meat loving husband says this is one of his favorite meals that I make. Can’t ask for more than that, since there is not a hint of meat in the recipe.
The spices and brown sugar, as well as the coconut milk gives the dish a delicious richness that can’t be beat.
Best of all, the recipe is done in the crock pot. Easy to prepare, makes the house smell delicious all day long and a cinch to put together at meal time.
