Fall Vegetable Curry (adapted from Cooking Light magazine)

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup diced peeled sweet potato
1 cup small cauliflower florets
1/4 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
2 teaspoons Madras curry powder
1/2 cup organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced sweet potato to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes. Decrease the heat to medium. Add the cauliflower, onion, and curry powder; and cook for 1 minute, stirring mixture constantly. Add the broth and the next 3 ingredients (through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cilantro, and serve with a dollop of yogurt.
