Zucchini Chickpea Curry Recipe:
This is a variation of Cooking Light's Chickpea Curry I made last week, here:

But here is the recipe of the Zucchini Chickpea Curry I made today: 

Heat Dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add 1 tbsp Canola oil to pan; swirl to coat.  Add 2 Zucchini, diced and 1/2 Yellow Squash, diced and saute 5 minutes or until beginning to brown a little.  Stir in 1 tsp Yellow Curry and cook for a couple minutes.  Add 1 can Chickpeas (rinsed/ drained), 1 cup of Organic No Salt Added Marinara, & 4 oz fresh Spinach; cook 2 minutes or until Spinach wilts, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup Low Fat Plain Yogurt. 

Loved this; super Yummy!
