  • 6-8 garlic cloves, or 2 tbsp of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh, grated ginger (or 1/2 tsp ground ginger)
  • 2 tbsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (add more depending on your preference)
  • 2 (15oz) cans of chickpeas
  • 1 (13.5oz) can of full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 4oz Perennial Daily Gut & Brain - Vanilla
  • dash of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 bunch of spinach or kale (optional)
  • handful of cilantro (optional)

  • 1 scoop So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative (optional)

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and ginger, season with salt and pepper. Sauté until onions are a bit brown and caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. 
  3. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Add chickpeas, turmeric, curry powder, and salt and pepper to pan and stir.
  4. Cook for a few minutes with minimal stirring, browning chickpeas.
  5. Once chickpeas are browned, mash them up a few to help thicken the curry. (You can do this right in the pan.)
  6. Add coconut milk, Perennial Daily Gut & Brain and vegetable stock to the pan and stir.
  7. Optional: Sprinkle in some red pepper flakes to add some heat!
  8. Bring to a small boil. Reduce to simmer and cook curry until it becomes a thick consistency, about 20 minutes.
  9. Optional: Two - three minutes before the curry is done, add the spinach/kale and stir.
  10. Serve curry over rice, and add the best parts on top:
    Scoop of yogurt
    [giant] handful of chopped fresh cilantro
    dash of turmeric powder and parsley
    drizzle of olive oil & enjoy!
