Peanut Chickpea Curry

Serves: 3 


  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp lime/lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 handfuls spinach
  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked pumpkin (optional if short of time)
  • Rice of choice (I like to use a mix of cauliflower and brown rice for this one, just to get an extra serve of veg in)
  • Chilli flakes, salt, and pepper for serving




1. In a small pot over low-med heat, heat peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, and garlic. Use a whisk to combine- leave on low heat and continue to stir.
2. Place spinach, chickpeas, onion, and water in a large pan and heat on medium heat until the onion is translucent and spinach has wilted.
3. Add peanut mix to the larger pan and stir, stir in pumpkin, cook for 2 minutes.
4. Serve with rice and top with chili flakes, salt, and pepper.
5. ENJOY!!!
