Since we’re still officially in WINTER, and since a Nor’easter blew through this past weekend, and since we stayed inside this weekend due to 60+ mph wind gusts, and since we had no internet but my camera worked, I’m sharing one more let’s-stay-inside-where-it’s-cozy, comfort recipe. Perhaps the last of the season…?
As much as I’m eagerly awaiting spring’s arrival later this month, the reality remains: it’s still winter. Ha! So here’s a recipe for what we ate on repeat this weekend: Creamy Coconut Chickpea Curry [or stew]. I say “or stew” because it came out rather liquid-y and more stew-like, but I prefer it this way. And it was a bit thicker on the second and third reheat. If you’d rather it not be so liquid-y, try just 2 cups of chicken broth.
This meal is one of my go-to dinners throughout fall and winter. All of the ingredients come from a Capsule Kitchen Checklist, so it’s great to make if you don’t know what to make for dinner, but your minimalist pantry is stocked with the essentials! It only takes 20-25 minutes, too, so if you put the rice on before you start, your whole meal is ready in 25 minutes, max. My kind of dinner!
Creamy Coconut Chickpea Curry
prep time: 5-10 minutes
cook time: 15 minutes
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
4 cans chickpeas
*4 cups chicken broth (make it vegetarian with vegetable broth)
4 tsp garam masala
2 tsp curry powder
3 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
1 can coconut milk or 1/2 cup heavy cream (optional)
Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil on medium heat until cooked through. Add spices and stir completely. Then add tomatoes, tomato paste, chickpeas, 2-4 cups of chicken broth.
Bring to low boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Add coconut milk (or heavy cream). Taste and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve hot over rice.
*Start with 2 cups of broth, and see if you want more liquid. I used 4 cups, and it was more like a stew. It thickened up after the second and third reheats.
