I love this recipe as it's simple, quick, healthy, and really tasty – which is everything you need in my book! Even though this chickpea curry only has a few Ingredients it’s packed full of flavor and I love adding lots of super healthy spinach! This curry can be eaten on its own as it's really substantial, but is always delicious with flatbreads, or some whole- grain rice or quinoa.
