Vary Your Ingredients to Make a Different Curry Each Time

One reason I love this recipe is that you can vary the vegetables – use butternut or kabocha squash instead of sweet potato, broccolini instead of zucchini, leeks instead of onion, and so on. Use what you have on hand to make a unique version of this recipe until waiting until you have every single ingredient to start making it!

Also, consider leaving the chickpeas out if you want a vegetable curry to go alongside baked chicken. Just substitute an extra cup or two of vegetables.
