Servings: Makes approximately 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or any other vegetable oil)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your desired level of spiciness)
  • 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes (or use fresh tomatoes)
  • 1 can (15 oz) coconut milk (full-fat for creaminess)
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (canned or cooked from dried)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth (low-sodium, if possible)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Cooked rice or naan bread, for serving


  1. In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the coconut oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and slightly browned.
  3. Stir in the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, and cayenne pepper to the skillet. Stir well to coat the onions and spices evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes to toast the spices.
  5. Pour in the diced tomatoes and coconut milk, stirring to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Add the cooked chickpeas and vegetable broth to the skillet. Stir gently, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  7. Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the curry simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will allow the flavors to intensify and the sauce to thicken.
  8. Just before serving, stir in the fresh spinach leaves and let them wilt in the curry.
  9. Season the Vegan Chickpea Curry with salt and pepper to your taste preferences.
  10. Serve the Vegan Chickpea Curry over cooked rice or alongside warm naan bread. Garnish with fresh cilantro for an added burst of flavor.
