Vegetable and Chickpea Curry

This recipe is from a November 1997 issue of Vegetarian Times.  I made it back than and loved it.  I also lost the recipe.  I found it again today and am of course making if for dinner tonight.

  3. Add ½ cup broth and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add carrots, bell pepper, onion and cauliflower. Cover pan and simmer over medium heat until tender, about 20 minutes.

  5. Cover and simmer until zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes. Add chickpeas and simmer just until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve vegetable curry over rice.
