RECIPE | Ten-minute Coconut Chickpea Curry

3rd June 2019

Midweek evenings are often an interesting juggle trying to cram in a million and one things after work like food shopping, the parenting malarkey, a spot of life-admin, a laundry load (or two) and a Netflix episode (or three).  Sometimes it feels like there’s no time to even eat dinner, let alone prepare it!  This super-speedy creamy chickpea curry is a great option for rustling up a tasty meal in 10 minutes flat with a few simple kitchen cupboard ingredients.  That’s quicker (and healthier) than ordering a takeaway! 

Coconut Chickpea Curry

Ingredients (serves 4): 

  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas, drained 
  • 1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 x 400ml can coconut milk 
  • 2 x medium onions, diced 
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed 
  • 100g fresh spinach 
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder 
  • ½ teaspoon each of ground coriander, paprika & cumin 



  1. Heat a little olive oil in a large pan then add the onion and garlic.  Cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the spices. 
  3. Pour in the drained chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and coconut milk.  Simmer for 8 minutes. 
  4. 2 minutes before it has finished cooking, add the spinach to the pan and pop a packet of rice in the microwave. 
  5. Serve the curry on a bed of rice and garnish with fresh coriander.

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | The Deep – family fun at one of the UK’s largest aquariums

We had such high expectations of The Deep. So many people have given us glowing reviews, I did wonder if the reality would disappoint. We had intended to visit during our last family holiday where we had stayed in a cottage near Hornsea. Frustratingly, all getting ill put paid to any hope of doing anything… so when The Deep recently invited the Girl About Blog Squad to visit, I practically bit their hand off!

WELLBEING | My 10 Tips For Living With & Coping With Anxiety

Living with and coping with anxiety can feel like, and mean something different to everyone, rearing its head at different moments in life – often feeling like a full force body swerve to the mind that you’re not expecting. It arrives often with no warning, without invite, and certainly isn’t a one that anyone chooses to have hanging around like a purple cloud of smog just slightly out of reach that you can’t quite put your finger on.
