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.


Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.50

Recommended equipment:


  • 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup of diced yellow onion
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh or powdered ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 kale stalks, stem removed
  • 1/8th cup of water


Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 farenheit.

Step 2

Mix cinnamon, cumin, ginger, and 1 tablespoon of the curry in a bowl. Toss chickpeas in seasoning.

Step 3

Place chickpeas on a non stick baking sheet. Cook for 15 minutes.

Step 4

While chickpeas are cooking, heat garlic and onion in a nonstick pan for 2 - 3 minutes.

Step 5

Add fire roasted tomatoes, water, and 1 tablespoon of curry powder. Cover and continue to cook.

Step 6

Place kale in a food processor, and pulse until kale is in small pieces. You can also do this by hand if you do not have a food processor.

Step 7

Add kale, and chickpeas to the curry and tomato mix. Let it simmer for 5 more minutes.

Step 8

Serve over rice or put it in a pita.

Plant based food, micro brews, punk rock, and running are what I am about.
