10 minute Chickpea Curry with Coriander Dressing

Need a delicious and nutritious meal in minutes, then this ones for you. And we all have days like that right?

All you need is some cooked chickpeas, I used organic tin chickpeas in water, some delicious spices and few tomatoes and voila a really delicious and satisfying meal.


If you have a little more time and I mean a maximum of 5 minutes then you can whip up my favourite coriander, lemon & tahini dressing which completely elevates the meal. As you know I really think that crunch is important so I topped everything with some of my delicious toasted sunflower seeds. Quick, hearty and delicious! Enjoy x
