A range of textures--crunchy peas, tender vegetables, and silky coconut broth--makes this cool-weather main incredibly satisfying. The chickpea mixture can also be a delicious gluten-free snack: After baking, toss with a little kosher salt, ground cumin, and ground red pepper.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 2

Place chickpeas on a rimmed baking sheet; pat dry. Add 1 tablespoon oil to chickpeas; toss to coat. Spread chickpeas in an even layer on pan. Bake at 450°F for 30 minutes. Add green peas to pan; bake at 450°F for 5 minutes or until chickpeas and green peas are crisp.

Step 3

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil; swirl to coat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add flour and curry powder; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until flour begins to brown, stirring constantly. Stir in butternut squash, cauliflower, and potatoes. Add vegetable stock, pepper, and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Step 4

Remove pan from heat; stir in coconut milk. Place about 1 1/2 cups vegetable mixture in each of 4 bowls; top each serving with about 1/3 cup chickpea mixture. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Pretty disappointing

I’m surprised at all the good reviews here. I reduced the vegetable stock by a cup and this was still too liquidy, and I cooked it longer than recommended. The peas don’t get crispy in 5 minutes, unless they’re totally dried beforehand I guess, but who has time for that? Overall the flavor was flat and unexciting so this was a disappointment.

A New Staple!

Amazing!  This deserves the "Staff Fave" rating.  We have been leaning more towards a plant based diet and this will definitely be going into our weekly rotation.  

Wonderful vegetarian curry

This was wonderful and made a ton!  I used the whole cauliflower and a whole container of diced butternut squash, so it really went far.  My husband doesn't like couscous but loved this.  Loved the crunch of the chickpeas and the peas.  Served it with Cilantro-chili couscous which it was paired with in Cooking Light. I Tried to post the link, but the review will not allow me to.

Average dish

I liked it but not enough to make again. I found it quite runny and thickened it with corn starch. I would cut the stock in half and think it would be less runny.

This has great flavor, but it needs less broth or way more vegies.  It also needs to be served with rice or couscous. That was perhaps a suggestion the magazine, but it's needs to be noted with the recipe here as well.

Unexpectedly delicious!

I loved this dish. I used one 32oz carton of vegetable stock and it was plenty of liquid. Used organic chickpeas and due to their smaller size the timing was off for baking & adding peas. Peas weren't done and chickepeas were getting overdone. Will separate next time. Making for the second time in a month tonight!
