real food. real life.
We make this often and it has never been posted! How is that possible?!?
Probably because the minute my life involved owning a school, I kissed every speck of spare quiet time good-bye! :)
I'm so glad I snapped some pictures of it one night, in the hustle of getting home late from work, and whipping up a delicious meal that included leftovers for the lunch the next day.
In the hustle of a very busy school year start this year, I knew in the back of my mind I hadn't posted a recipe a over a month (sad to have broken my record) and it was slowly eating away at me that I had no time to do what I love - sharing recipes! So, to my delight, when I logged in today to attempt to pull together a post, I found a slew of drafted posts, waiting for finishing touches. I must have known my life would be wild this August/September and prepared ahead of time. Does it say anything about me that I completely forgot that I had did that? Eek.
So, lucky me! I have a recipe ready to share!
And lucky you, twice over, because not only do you get this EASY PEASY curry recipe that comes together in less than 20 minutes, you don't have to hear me talk forever about it! No more stories, just food. It's all about the food because that's the whole reason I have this food blog. For the love of healthy food. So, let's get to it.
Creamy Chickpea Curry
1 can diced tomatoes with juices
1 can coconut milk
2 cloves garlic
2-3 tbsp curry powder, turmeric, and curry paste (or your own concoction of flavour!)
salt/pepper ro taste
1 can rinsed chickpeas
Cooked brown rice or quinoa
What to do:
1) Heat diced onion and garlic over medium heat in a bit of oil or water. I used a cast iron pan for this dish. Stir around until smelling good.
2) Add in spices and can of tomatoes. Increase heat and add in coconut milk. Bring to a light boil.
3) Add honey, reduce heat to simmer. Add chickpeas and salt/pepper to taste. Simmer for as little or as long as you wish. Serve over rice/quinoa. Yum!!!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
