Slow Cooker Coconut Vegetable Curry

I have a serious love affair with curry.  There is nothing better to me than sweet and spicy curry on top of a mountain of white rice.  All of the flavors and spices and textures meld together into nothing but happiness.

So when I found this recipe for an easy coconut curry with minimal ingredients from one of my very favorite cooking blogs, Pinch of Yum, I jumped on it and modified my little crock pot loving heart out.
