Hmm.. I wonder if I can get away with not cooking the chickpeas if they are going to be baking in the oven? Already pre-soaked.. (I always try to avoid canned).

This is very similar to my kitchen staple recipe, except I like to add cauliflower for the volume and to lower proteins ratio. Also I add a LOT more garlic and LOTS of healing spices (which are btw missing from the recipe above): ginger, turmeric, cumin, mustard seeds, blk pepper and cayenne. What you WON\'T find in my recipe (and what I consider completely unnecessary ingredients in a healthy meal) are cornstarch and nutritional yeast. If my curry needs thickening, I\'ll add a little bit of arrowroot powder, but its rarely an issue.

This looks delicious! I want to try making it this week! Question, how many servings does this recipe yield? TIA!

Hi Christine! I make this for myself and portion it out in Tupperware’s. Usually get 5-6 cups depending on how big your peppers are.

I made this and it was delicious! I blended half of the chickpeas with the sauce to make it extra thick and creamy, because I used low-fat coconut milk. Thanks for a great vegan recipe!

I added 2 to 3 tsp. curry powder to it (curry is a combination of spices). I also use more spinach--you buy it in bunches. I presume it\'s a mistake--otherwise, it\'s not a curry.

I\'ve made my version multiple times to good reviews.
