Cauliflower + Chickpea Curry

Cauliflower-Curry-Chickpeas

This recipe was inspired by a rouge can of chickpeas I had sitting in my pantry for almost 6 months. Since I love curry, I decided to make an Indian Chickpea & Cauliflower Curry to serve over steamed basmati rice or naan bread. Rice works better because the curry is a bit thin and can absorb better in rice.

Serve with a fresh green salad or some sliced cucumbers and you have an easy, hearty and flavourful weeknight dinner. Double the recipe and make an extra batch – because it freezes very well!

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small single serve container of low-fat Greek yogurt
