This past weekend I had some of the kids out for dinner. We wanted to make something delicious and warm since it was about 3 degrees outside and we were heading out to an 8:30 pm movie (The Big Short) so it had to be easy and fast. I made a chicken tagine (I’ll teach you how to do that next week!), coconut whole-grain jasmine rice, sauteed green beans with Mother-In-Law brand fermented chili sauce, and this coconut chickpea curry, which stole the show. I’ll teach you how to make all the other things, too, but for today, I wanted to get this curry recipe to you. It’s really easy, so delicious, and satisfying – and a great vegetarian dish to bump up the plant-based foundation of your diet which is known to promote health and support a healthy weight, too. Head on over here to get this great new recipe!
