Vegetable curries are a great hearty choice for a vegetarian

meal. Filled with bold flavors and a good variety of vegetables, they can be

healthy, satisfying, and delicious — as long as the vegetables are well cooked

and the flavors are balanced.To nail the bold flavor we turned to a few pantry-friendly

items like curry powder, garam masala, garlic, and tomato paste while fresh

ginger and a Serrano chili pumped up the flavor even more. A combination of

sweet potatoes, canned diced tomatoes, eggplant, green beans, and chickpeas

guaranteed everyone would walk away from the table satiated.We started by cooking the sweet potatoes since they would

take the longest to become tender, followed by the eggplant and green beans. We

also found that 20 minutes of simmering eliminated any tinny taste in the

tomatoes and allowed the chickpeas to turn from crumbly to creamy.Finishing the dish with a generous handful of cilantro and a

dollop of Greek yogurt helped to add brightness and brought our flavors into balance.

You can adjust the spice level of this dish by either including less of the Serrano

chili or adding its seeds.INDIAN-STYLE VEGETABLE CURRYServings: 6Start to finish: 45 minutesIngredients:1 (14.5 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes3 tablespoons canola oil4 teaspoons curry powder1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala2 onions, chopped fine12 ounces sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch piecesSalt and pepper3 garlic cloves, minced1 Serrano chili, stemmed, seeded, and minced1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger1 tablespoon no-salt-added tomato paste1 pound eggplant, cut into 1/2 inch pieces8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch lengths2 cups water1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed1/4cup minced fresh cilantro2/3cup 2 percent Greek yogurtPulse tomatoes with their juice in food processor until
