Vegan chickpea curry

 

I adapted this recipe from one on BBC Good Food. This is great when you need a quick, filling and tasty meal and also works good as a side dish with something else. The vegetables can also be adapted to suit what you have in. I can’t say I weight out exactly the amount of spices listed below, I tend to just chuck everything in! This is one that can easily be adapted to suit your own taste. I am a big fan of spicy food so I will often include more chillis!

 

I like to have this as a post workout meal and batch freeze several portions so it can be ready even faster.

Ingredients 

1 tbsp oil

1 tsp garam masala

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp coriander

1 x 400g can chickpeas in water, drained

1 x 400g can tinned tomatoes

1 onion

2-3 mixed peppers, chopped into slices (the amount can easily vary)

Any other vegetables you wish to use – it’s a great way to use things up

100g spinach – fresh or frozen
