1. In a large saucepan heat the oil over medium heat. Add the squash and onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the curry powder. Cook 30 seconds more or until fragrant.

2. Stir in the vegetable broth, chickpeas, curry paste, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or until squash is just tender. Stir in the coconut milk. Remove from heat. Just before serving, stir in the spinach. Serve over rice with Greek yogurt and lime, if desired.
