Quick Vegetarian Chickpea Curry for Lunch!

Chickpeas, eh? ¬† Garbanzos, you say? ¬†Someone’s on a health kick in this house (hint: it’s not me or any of the pets) so we bought the kind of groceries we normally wouldn’t. ¬†As a result, it’s new recipe time! ¬†I documented the process to whet your appetite for this yummy curried treat! ¬†You could call it vegetarian too, if you’re into that.

This recipe yields 2 servings and takes about 20 minutes


You’ll need:

– Olive oil (2-3 tbsp)

– Half of one large onion, pick your favourite colour

– Curry powder (3 tsp)

– Ginger (1 tsp)

– 5 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 can chick peas (garbanzos), drained and rinsed

– 1 medium tomato, diced

– 1 tbsp water



1.  Heat olive oil on medium in deep skillet.  Saute your diced onions for 3 minutes.

2.  Add minced garlic, ginger, and curry powder, stirring occasionally over the course of 5 minutes.

This smells awesome.

3. Add chickpeas to the deliciousness cooking in the pan with 1 tbsp of water.  Cook and stir for 1 minute.

4. Add tomatoes, cooking and stirring for 5 minutes. ¬†Careful! ¬†Don’t crush the tomatoes as you stir!

5. Serve!  You can use flatbread or rice, or serve with a side of spinach and tomatoes like I did.

Note: Brushing teeth immediately after indulging on curry will ruin your toothbrush.  Learn from my mistakes.


That’s it! A quick and delicious meal for lunch. ¬†If you know of something similar I should try, please comment!

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
