I adapted this recipe from my mother in law, and it was amazing!  She made it for us for dinner the last time we visiting and I couldn’t get enough.  I mean, anything with coconut cream is going to be amazing – but the combination of the cool coconut with the warm broth spices is absolutely perfect.

I always love finding new ways to jazz up chickpeas.  My favorite recipe lately has been the Easy Weeknight Coconut Chickpea Curry.  This recipe starts out similar but has a completely new and different flavor profile.  Its such a cozy dish for a cool fall or winter night.

    Yum! So easy and tasty! I like how hearty this feels with the chickpeas and lentils. I’ll for sure make again. I actually forgot the cilantro, lemon and rice (oops!) and my husband and I both enjoyed it. Def excited to try the leftovers over rice tomorrow.

    I’m loving this food blog! It’s rare to find recipes with simple ingredients, quick steps, and minimal pots and pans and on top of that everything I’ve made so far is delicious. I was so daunted by vegan cooking and this is helping me a lot. Thanks for sharing all of these recipes – I’m going to cook my way through. I’d love to see an Insta round up on what you cook the most 🙂
