Curried Vegetables on Couscous
This hearty vegetarian dinner is absolutely packed with vegetables. Potatoes, tomatoes, carrot, chickpeas, and bell peppers all go into the slow cooker, where they soak up the flavors of curry powder and cumin. For a bit of heat and a deeper spice flavor, opt for Madras curry powder instead of regular curry powder. You can customize the recipe to suit your preferences, using any hard, dense vegetables you love in place of potato and carrot—try winter squash, sweet potatoes, parsnips, or rutabaga. Look for mango chutney (a delicious sweet-tart finishing touch) either with the Indian food or near the jams and jellies.
