Chickpea and Cauliflower Curry

1 teaspoon grapeseed oil

1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup coarsely chopped cauliflower florets

1/4 cup baby carrots, cut into rounds

1 tablespoon dried currants or raisins

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon curry powder

1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 tablespoon light unsweetened coconut milk

2 tablespoons fat-free plain Greek yogurt


Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add the onion and cook about 1 minute, or until softened. Reduce to low heat.  Add the water, chickpeas, cauliflower, carrots, currants, cinnamon, curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk. Stir to combine. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft and the liquid is mostly absorbed. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve topped with yogurt and garnish with additional cinnamon, if desired.
