Coconut Spinach Chickpea Curry

I’m so so so so sorry for neglecting my blogging responsibilities!
I have been snowed under just with school, but I’ve also been training for a 12km marathon run, so you guys can forgive me right? 😦
I also got my own electric guitar last weekend – I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!
It’s a really amazing Ibanez second hand guitar, but I love it none the less.

Back to the recipe 😛
This is for all you chickpea lovers out there – yes you!
I have to say, this recipe is definitely wonderfully creamy and reminded me of home (Malaysia) a lot :’)
It’s a healthier, more vitamin packed version of your average curry, with protein from the chickpeas and plenty of goodness from spinach, not to mention the fact that it contains no oils or fats (other than the coconut).
So serve this as is, or with your fav healthy carbohydrate for a complete meal!

Serves: 2/3
