Curried Chickpeas ~ Meatless Monday

Happy Monday!!  Today I thought I’d share one of those accidental recipes when you clean out the fridge and end up with a really tasty meal.  I love curry, I know it’s not for everyone but if you start out in small doses it’s super delish and won’t overpower the dish.  This is a quick and easy meal that will leave you feeling satisfied 🙂curried chickpeasPrintable Recipe

Serves 2

1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (about 1 3/4 cup)
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 cup spinach or kale
1 celery stalk, diced
2 green onions, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1-2 tsp curry powder
1-2 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon)
Drizzle of olive oil
S&P to taste

Drizzle olive oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add chickpeas, peppers, celery, S&P and saute for a few minutes.  Add garlic, curry, and cloves. Saute for another 5 minutes or so stirring frequently.  Add the spinach, green onions, cilantro and lemon juice and saute for another 2 or 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve into 2 bowls.

    Not a veggie but love chick pea curry – would you ever cook dry ones?

    I’m doing one of those ‘clean out the fridge’ things right now – it won’t be as wholesome as this one though…
