We eat a fair amount of curry and chick peas in our house. Now I’m not talking all the time but everyone will eat it which is a big success when you have two little kids and a vegan. One of our other favourites is Curried Cauliflower & Chickpeas with Coconut Milk that I shared back in August and wanted to share this one today!
It’s so easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of prep time. Though you need to make sure you have all the ingredients (as with any recipe). Yesterday, I had to run to the store – literally – to pick up an onion. I wasn’t to upset as I wanted to get my first post half marathon run in and my hamstring was feeling good.
I got the recipe from my mother a few years ago. She found it in a magazine and thought my husband would like it since it was vegan. She’s always trying new vegan recipes for him and follows all the directions 100%, me not so much 😉
Curried Cauliflower, Chick Peas and Spinach.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp minced fresh ginger (yum)
- 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced (I always put way more 3-5 cloves)
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
- 1 small head of cauliflower
- 1 can (19oz/540ml) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 4 cups of baby spinach
- Rice or quinoa or other grain.
1. In frying pan heat oil and cook onion and sugar, stiring occasionally until beginning to brown.
2. Add ginger, garlic, garam masala, vinegar, cayenne, salt and pepper; reduce heat to medium-low and cook until onion is golden brown.
3. Cut cauliflower into florets to make 6 cups (I never measure this). Add to pan along with chickpeas and raisins; cover and cook, stirring once or twice until cauliflower is tender (about 18 minutes).
4. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. ( I don’t remove it from the heat when I put in the spinach).
5. Surve over rice of your choice.
Our girls actually eat this!!!!!!! I find this one really good after a day as the flavour is that much stronger. What’s even better – apparently I’ve shared this recipe on my blog before, whoops! Oh well, I took the time to write this up so I’m going to hit publish anyway. Enjoy 🙂
Do you find curry better the day you make it or a day later ?
Ever run (or walk) to the store for an ingredient you forgot?
Ever shared a recipe twice on your blog? Or something else?
