This curry chickpea recipe is truly simple and fragrant; I served it over basmati rice. The addition of potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots make this a hearty and flavorful dish. You can swap or add ingredients; this really is a versatile dish, throw in some kale or spinach for example. Monday was one of those days coming in from work I needed to make something quick; this is roughly a 30-minute meal. Enjoy and fill your kitchen with the aroma of curry.

Ingredients:
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Shallot, chopped
1 Sweet Potato, diced
1 Quart (32oz) Vegetable Broth, divided

5 small Gold Potatoes, chopped/quartered-smaller ones
2 Carrots, diced
½ Tbsp Curry powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Salt/Pepper to taste (Abt 1 ½ Tsp Salt and ½ Tsp Pepper)
