Meatless Monday #1- Chickpea Curry Recipe

Hi Everybody,

chickpea curry

So today i’m going to be doing something a little different -a veggie dish. I just keep reading about the impact of eating meat. I know some people don’t want to give up meat but the impact that undertaking a “Meatless Monday” has on you yourself and on the environment is unbelievable.

Anyway, for my first dish, i’m recreating a chickpea curry inspired by The Happy PearΒ on their YouTube video – here

You Will Need

1 tsp oil

1 clove of garlic

veg of choice – (onion, peppers, spinach kale etc. whatever takes your fancy!)

1 tin of coconut milk

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

1 tin of chickpea’s

Side order of your choice I choose brown rice



2 tbsp curry power

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cumin

salt & pepper to taste

(The Happy Pear add in Lemon & Lime but I left it out)

What Next?

First boil your side order eg rice and let it cook while you prepare your curry

Heat the oil in your pan, remember to choose a deep pan as a lot of liquid will be added.

Add the garlic and the chopped onion and peppers etc.

Next add your chili

Add the spices and let them cook away for 25-30 seconds

Then add in your drained chickpeas, tomatoes and coconut milk

Add in your spinach Β or kale and let it cook and wilt for a few minutes

Once it is cooked and hot enough to serve plate up and serve with your side
