Here is a tasty meal to help you with eating more vegetables in the New Year! First up, spinach!
Chickpea and Spinach Curry
inspired by others, long ago…(not sure where or who)
1 Tbsp oil
1 large onion, chopped
1-1/2 Tbsp ginger, grated
1 Tbsp Thai red curry paste (more or less)
1-1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
1-14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed well
1-14 oz can diced tomatoes, not drained
6 cups fresh spinach, torn if large
1/4 – 1/2 cup water, (depending on how juicy your tomatoes are)
1/2 tsp salt
rice, if desired
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onions and saute until soft. Stir in the ginger and saute for another minute or so. Stir in the curry paste and sugar until the onions are coated with the paste and there are few lumps, about 2-3 minutes. Add the chickpeas and tomatoes and let it simmer for a minute or two. Stir in the spinach and water and cook until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally. Stir in salt, taste and add more if desired. Serve with a dollop of plain yogurt, over brown rice.
