RECIPE | Ten-minute Coconut Chickpea Curry
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!
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
- Heat a little olive oil in a large pan then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the spices.
- Pour in the drained chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and coconut milk. Simmer for 8 minutes.
- 2 minutes before it has finished cooking, add the spinach to the pan and pop a packet of rice in the microwave.
- Serve the curry on a bed of rice and garnish with fresh coriander.

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.
