  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 3 cups cubed (3/4 to 1 inch) peeled eggplant

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 cups uncooked whole wheat couscous

Steps

  • 1
    Place Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Refrigerate until serving time.
  • 3
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until translucent. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until softened. Stir in curry powder, turmeric, cinnamon and red pepper; cook and stir about 30 seconds.
  • 4
    In cooker, mix onion mixture and remaining curry ingredients except spinach and couscous.
  • 5
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 5 to 6 hours.
  • 6
    Stir spinach into curry in cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 5 to 10 minutes longer or until slightly wilted.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, cook couscous as directed on package. Serve curry over couscous; top with sauce.

  • Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.
  • If you can't find whole wheat couscous at your grocer, use the more traditional couscous instead.
  • This dish is also yummy sprinkled with raisins or topped with purchased mango chutney.
