Healthy eating: Chickpea Spinach Curry

Today I have another recipe for you, that meet my three requirements on cooking. It doesn’t take long, it’s with low expenditure and a healthy, delicious dish comes out of it.

Chickpea Spinach Curry

You need:

  • 1-2 onions
  • 1 big can of chickpeas
  • 1 pack of spinach
  • Curry, salt, pepper (a little bit Maggi)
  • maybe garlicpowder, cumin
  • for the non-vegan version: 1/2 piece of feta cheese

Chop the onions and roast them gently in the pan with enough oil. Once they are translucient, add 2 tablespoons curry powder, distribute and fry briefly.
Now add the drained chickpeas, the spinach and about a liter of water. Simmer for about 10 minutes with the lid closed. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced and it becomes a nice consistency. Stir from time to time, to avoid scorching.
If you prefer a non-vegan version, crumb yet ½ piece of feta cheese and mix it in.
Now season with salt and pepper. A little bit of garlic powder and cumin matches also very good.

Finally, my Grandma’s insider tip: She always says: “On Greens must a little dash of Maggi”. I like it, but I know that not everybody does. If you are not sure you try it first on a spoon.
