1 cup chopped carrots (about 2 carrots)

3/4 cup chopped celery (about 2 stalks)

4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

2 teaspoons curry powder

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice

Cooked couscous or rice

  • In a Dutch oven, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add squash, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent and vegetables are softening. 
  • Add garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, and pepper flakes. Cook, stirring constantly, one minute longer. Add kale, cook and stir until wilted slightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Add diced tomatoes, broth, chickpeas and raisins. Season with salt and pepper. Turn heat up and bring mixture to a boil, then partially cover the pan, and simmer at low heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat, stir in orange juice. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add additional salt, pepper, or orange juice if desired.
  • Serve with couscous or rice. Garnish with chopped cilantro and a dollop of yogurt, if desired.
