15 Minute Chickpea and Spinach Curry

I love this recipe as its simple, quick, healthy and really tasty – which is everything you need in my book! I absolutely love curry and probably go to my favourite Indain restaurants a little too often than is strictly healthy but they are so good. I also seem to have spicy food cravings at least three to four times a week so I love whipping up speedy curries which are full of healthy and hearty ingredients.

Even though my chickpea curry only has a few Ingredients it’s packed full of flavour and I love adding lots of my favourite super healthy spinach!

This curry can be eaten on its own as its really substantial but is always delicious with flatbreads (I like my buckwheat flatbreads), or some whole grain rice or quinoa.
