When I was first transitioning to a plant-based diet, this was one of my staple meals. It’s really easy to throw together and reeeeally cheap to make. It’s also great for leftovers. It’s oil free and packed with nutrients.

Hi! I made the curry chickpeas, and it was absolutely delicious! But mine does not look at all like the picture. Mine is much darker. Is the recipe maybe missing an ingredient, like maybe coconut milk? I think I’ll try adding that next time.
So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
Hi Debbie! I also thought it was missing something & have made it with coconut milk (added 1 can). It is soooo good.
