Chickpea Curry Comfort Recipe
I discovered chickpeas several years ago while dining out at an Indian restaurant. I had this amazing dish with curry, vegetables, and mouthwatering naan (a delicious bread) on the side. It was heaven and soon became the only dish I would order every time I went there.
The restaurant has long since closed but this recipe, inspired by that dish, lives on in my kitchen.
CHICKPEA CURRY COMFORT RECIPE
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 onion, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 ripe tomatoes, diced
- 1 1/2 c chickpeas, cooked (or 1 15 oz can, drained and rinsed)
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- salt, to taste
- Heat oil in a large pot and sauté onions and garlic until onions are translucent.
- Add curry to the pot and cook, stirring continuously, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
- Add the chickpeas and tomatoes and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes.
- Add salt and enjoy!
- Enjoy this dish over brown rice or quinoa for a filling, nutritious meal.
- Top with cilantro for added flavor and freshness.
- If you like a spicier dish, add some red chili pepper.
Studies show that chickpeas can actually help control appetite making them a total winner when it comes to weight loss. This aromatic dish also contains flavor-filled garlic which not only helps to satiate, but also cleanses the digestive tract, flushing out fat-storing toxins.
Now that’s comforting!
