Veggie Curry with Yogurt

Veggie Curry with Yogurt

Looking for a healthy veggie packed, yet hearty and filling winter time dish?  Look no further....I made this today and it was loaded with veggies (Carrots, Zucchini, Acorn Squash, Onions) so you feel good about what you are eating, but still get that comforting full feeling we all need this time of year!  And it's made cool and creamy with a little Yogurt on top.  And who couldn't use more probiotics in their day?  If you don't know what I'm talking about, check this out: Benefits of Yogurt!

And making this dish is pretty easy too, here is the recipe:

Veggie Curry with Yogurt Recipe:

1 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 Onion, diced
2 Zucchini, diced
Sprinkle of Garlic Powder
1 cup Carrots, grated
1 cup Chick Peas (if canned, rinsed/ drained)
1/3 cup Trader Joe's red Curry Simmer Sauce

In hot pan, heat oil, onion & zucchini, until beginning to brown.  Sprinkle on the garlic powder, stir for a minute or so then add the rest of the ingredients, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile cook an Acorn Squash in the microwave - making sure to rinse, dry, and poke it all over with a knife first, so the air can escape.  Cook for 6 minutes, turn and do another 4 minutes.  You may need to cook less or more depending on its size - but basically keep going until its soft!  Then cut in half, scoop out seeds and remove the flesh.

Your meal is ready to plate!  Start with 1/2 cup of the Acorn Squash.

Then top with 1 cup of the Curry Veggies.

Add 2 Tbsp Plain Non Fat Yogurt on top to cool it off and give it some creaminess - YUM!

By the way, it's worth noting that this dish has 1 1/2 cups of veggies which equals 3 servings of vegetables; not bad for one meal!
