Creamy Coconut Chickpea Curry

This is so delicious and easy to create! Filling, warm and comforting. This makes 4 servings.

Chickpeas are an awesome source of protein and fibre, did you know that 2 cups of chickpeas gives you your daily recommended intake?! They are loaded with minerals and nutrients like manganese, copper and folate that are essential for good health. Plus chickpeas help to keep you full! If you find you get bloated after eating beans, try buying them in dried form and soak overnight. The curry is made from tomatoes and coconut which is a really healthy source of fat with warming and anti-inflammatory spices such as turmeric. Laid on a bed of greens and a protein packed quinoa/millet base. You can use basmati rice, brown rice or any whole grain you'd like.
