Weeknight Coconut Chickpea Curry

After the holidays and what seems like days and days of leftovers, it’s nice to slow down with much lighter recipes. Of course, light does not mean lacking in flavor. Which is why today I am going to be providing you my review of a delicious coconut chickpea curry!

Weeknight Cooking At Its Finest

Even though many of us are staying home, it doesn’t mean that we’re spending longer in the kitchen, or even wanting to after a long day of work. I know I love to cook, but during the week I need to think of quick recipes that will satisfy our hunger. When I found this recipe for the chickpea curry, I was thrilled because I’ve been dying to cook with chickpeas. Plus, I’ve been incorporating more meatless meals to have our protein come from other sources. All in moderation, friends.

This recipe comes together so quickly and most of the time is spent simmering for all the flavors to permeate the kitchen and the chickpeas to become more tender. This gives you time to prepare the rice, or warm up some naan bread. To save more time, I purchased our naan bread. Packs can be found in most grocery stores in the bakery section.

Stress-Free Dinner 100%

Real and Vibrant’s post is so incredibly beginner-friendly. When it is mentioned that your dinner will be ready in 30 minutes or less, they’re absolutely right. Take the time to review the ingredient list and prepare your spices and veggies. Once you have all that measured out, this delicious coconut chickpea curry will come together in no time. The directions are also very clear, so you won’t find yourself re-reading instructions over and over. Again–less stress.

I often hear from people that making a curry must be time-consuming or difficult. It all comes down to the spices and they’re all so incredibly accessible now. Even the standards grocery stores carry these spices, without needing an international aisle. How great is that?!

That’s also why I enjoy this recipe as well. The last thing that I want to feel during the week is overwhelmed that I cannot find a certain ingredient. Luckily at this point, many of these spices have become standard in my spice collection.

I’d also like to mention that this recipe comes with delightful serving suggestions. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve struggled with trying to figure out what to serve with a recipe I am reviewing. So, sincere thanks to this blogger. I know you’ll be thankful too, my friends.

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

When I find these recipes to review, I think of my household as well as yours. I think of our similar situations in the kitchen and try these out for you before you add these to your weeknight menu. This recipe is truly a winner in my eyes. Feeling a bit tired of turkey and meat, I found this curry to be so incredibly delightful. It’s filling, flavorful, and just a pleasure to look at, too!

If you’re looking for a break from meat or just needing to switch up your palette, consider trying this for dinner. It’s not an expensive meal, it’s delicious, and your household will be left feeling very satisfied. This makes for great leftovers, too.

Real and Vibrant, you get a 5/5 from me. I know I’ll be exploring more of your blog soon!
