Super Easy and Quick Curried Chickpea Dish


So this is a recipe I HAD to post for a few reasons:
#1 It’s SUPER easy, fast and cheap!
#2  My meat eating hubby LOVES it!
#3 It may be my kiddos favorite meal
#4 It’s perfect to take to a potluck and is good cold or hot!
#5 Left overs are soooo yummy – it’s actually even better the next day!

1 can chickpeas – rinsed and drained
1 can full fat coconut milk
1 x Bullion cube (chicken or veggie)
1 TBSP Curry powder* (I prefer mild so F can eat)
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 bag of spinach
Salt and pepper to taste (but I find you don’t need it with the bullion)
Serve over cooked rice or quinoa.  We also love it with papadums!
I also add raisins to mine –because I love the savory curry with sweet raisins!

Add chickpeas and coconut milk to a pot and simmer for 10 minutes (helps soften up the chickpeas a bit)  add in bullion cube and curry powder.   About 5 minutes before serving add frozen peas and spinach!  Serve!!!

*you may need to add extra curry powder!   I have 2 different kinds and one I add a TBSP and the other I have to add 3 TBSP! 

That’s all – I said it was easy!!

Please note if serving to little people – the curry powder stains clothes – so I usually give F his when he’s just in a diaper!
