Eggplant and chickpea curry, from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

Eggplant and chickpea curry for Meatless Monday, from FatFree Vegan Kitchen (on Soup Chick).

Isn't is fun when you can go to the ordinary grocery store and come home with all of the ingredients to make something extraordinary?

Best of all, everything goes into a slow cooker at once, and hangs out for up to eight hours. Use other winter squash (blue hubbard would be wonderful), or combine several types. Vegan and gluten-free, the stew is hearty and zesty enough to serve to your football-watching friends at halftime.
