Vegan Chickpea Curry

Servings: Makes approximately 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or any other vegetable oil)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your desired level of spiciness)
  • 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes (or use fresh tomatoes)
  • 1 can (15 oz) coconut milk (full-fat for creaminess)
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (canned or cooked from dried)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth (low-sodium, if possible)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Cooked rice or naan bread, for serving
  • Instructions:
  • In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.
  • Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and slightly browned.
  • Stir in the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  • Add the curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, and cayenne pepper to the skillet. Stir well to coat the onions and spices evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes to toast the spices.
  • Pour in the diced tomatoes and coconut milk, stirring to combine all the ingredients.
  • Add the cooked chickpeas and vegetable broth to the skillet. Stir gently, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the curry simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will allow the flavors to intensify and the sauce to thicken.
  • Just before serving, stir in the fresh spinach leaves and let them wilt in the curry.
  • Season the Vegan Chickpea Curry with salt and pepper to your taste preferences.
  • Serve the Vegan Chickpea Curry over cooked rice or alongside warm naan bread. Garnish with fresh cilantro for an added burst of flavor.
