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 & cheap

#2  My meat eating hubby LOVES it

#3 It may be my 16 month old’s favourite 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


Curried Chickpeas by Dairy Free Betty


(not a pretty pic but I promise it tastes amazing!)


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 milk 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 savoury 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!



  1. have you ever tried this without the bullion? it sounds great, but i dont use it. i havent found one that is vegan, and isnt mostly sodium...thoughts on a replacement?

    1. Hey Michele,
      You could totally take it out! It does add some saltiness and a little sweetnesss. Maybe add a little nutritional yeast and some sea salt!

  2. went heavy on the curry powder and added 2 tbsp nutritional yeast. wish i could post a pic. its beautiful.

    1. Love it!! Post a pic on my fb page!!! Would love to see! Hopefully you loved it!

  3. I love this dish!! Thanks so much for bringing it to our potluck!
