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 | Teddy Bears Picnic at Elements Coffee House in Derby

I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.

So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.

RECOMMENDATION | The Stratford Brasserie, Stratford – East London

Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
