Beet and Chickpea Coconut Curry [Vegan, Grain-Free]



Cook Time



  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 beet, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube


  1. Start by sautéeing the onion in some oil for about 2 minutes before adding the garlic and cooking it for another minute on medium heat. Now add the tomatoes and cook until most of the liquids have dissolved. Now add the beets, chickpeas, spices and bell pepper and add about 1 cup water and a can of full-fat coconut milk with the bouillon cube.
  2. Bring it to a boil and simmer with a lid, while occasionally stirring, until the sauce reaches your perfect consistency, between 15-20 minutes for thick sauce. Serve with grains of choice (rice, quinoa, etc) or any form of bread, such as roti. Top with some cilantro and peppers (optional).

This was my first time ever cooking beets as opposed to juicing them. The beets came out so tender and soft, to my suprise! I really enjoyed the ginger in it as well. Cooking was easy and it was nice to just let it simmer into something wonderful... I used granulated garlic instead of whole cloves and did half an onion instead of a whole. Thank you for the recipe :)

Made this for dinner to try something new with the beets I had waiting to be used. I love love love curry but was slightly hesitant to try this recipe because the photo doesn\'t really do it for me as cute as it is with the rice bear but anyway, wholly molley!!! This dish smells and tastes divine plus it was simple to make. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for the recipe!
