This quick, easy and fulfilling vegetarian comfort dish is a huge favorite of mine when it’s getting a little bit chilly outside, and I’m pretty confident it will soon be a favorite of yours too!
Let’s face it, sometimes we just don’t have time to prepare a fancy dinner when we come back from work after a busy day, and we don’t even have the inspiration. We can be lazy, tired, or have activities on the side (any excuse is accepted), and we just want to have dinner, I mean food. Often, it is the same scenario for all of us, wherever we are: we open the fridge, already starving and wondering what we will be cooking tonight. And yes, we end up cooking the same meal again and over again, the worse situation being when we simply grab the nearest take away, with all the risks it implies: food full of fats, added sugar and over preservatives. Keep this last scenario occasional. Your body is your health, take care of it!
Even if I am a food blogger, I am exactly like you. Sometimes I just don’t have time or I feel too tired to cook anything fancy. The only difference is that since I am cooking (and baking) a lot, I know exactly what my food consists of, which according to me is key. I always avoid buying processed food as much as possible because in any processed food there are various additives and unnecessary fats, sugars (yes sugar!), and far too much salt, all this in order to enhance the taste of your food.
You obviously don’t need all this, so let’s go back to basics with a special recipe for you on the blog today: an easy veggie everyday meal that everyone can make at home in less than 30 minutes. It’s also 100% vegan, gluten free, fulfilling and very healthy. This recipe is so simple that when you have made it once already, it’s easy to memorize the ingredients and make it again. You don’t necessarily need to stick to the recipe proportions, this chickpea curry is fortunately very indulgent, and as long as you like spicy food you can adapt the recipe as it suits you. For instance, you don’t necessarily need the cashews. I personally like their crunchy taste in the dish, but you can totally skip them. Also, sometimes I like to add some pineapple chunks into my curry to make it sweet and savory. You might find me weird, but I promise you, it is very tasty! Just remember that a curry is very forgiving and allows you to add basically any food you want (or almost)….
