    Great tasting meatless dish! Loved that it could be put together quickly - it simmered while I made coucous.

    My whole family loved this, so it's a keeper! I made some changes to suit our tastes -- left out the butternut squash, added drained & cubed tofu and green beans, and used only half the turmeric called for. It made it perfect for us. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was the perfect curry for a cool fall evening. I doubled the recipe, but only used 3 cups of stock, which was plenty of liquid. As per another reviewer's suggestion, I added a can of chickpeas to increase the protein content. Next time I might try adding a few raisins for added sweetness. I served it over brown rice, and topped it with slivered almonds. Thanks for sharing a keeper.

    Delicious! I cut up some chicken breast and cooked it separately in a large pot with 1tsp of the curry, using the other 2 tsp of curry with the squash/potato mixture. When the chicken was completely cooked I combined them all into one pot. Turned out great, served over brown rice.

    Loved it, and I agree it tasted better the next day! I didn't have vegetable stock so I used reduced sodium chicken broth and didn't have fresh ginger so I used powdered. I left out the bay leaf. I would add another apple next time. I also added part curry powder and part paste.


I am retired through medical grounds and spend a lot of daytime hours scanning the web. Recipezaar takes up a lot of that time! I'm told that I have a good sense of humour and this helps me get by on a daily basis. Cooking helps a lot, but I have trouble remembering ingredients or even what book a recipe hase come from (Ihave that many!) As a result, strange concoctions often follow me out of the kitchen. No one has died from this as yet, so I guess that I am OK.
