Chickpea, Tomato and Spinach Curry Recipe




  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic–ginger paste
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 2 handfuls of spinach leaves
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • Handful of coriander leaves
  • Coconut yogurt, to serve – optional


1. Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Chuck in the onion, along with a pinch of salt. Cook for 6 minutes until soft.

2. Stir in the garlic–ginger paste, turmeric and garam masala. Cook for 1 minute, stirring until it smells fragrant.

3. Turn up the heat, chuck in the tomatoes and the tin of chickpeas with all of their water. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, then leave the curry to bubble away for 5 minutes.

4. Drop in the spinach leaves. Once wilted, take the pan off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice to taste. Spoon into a bowl, stir through most of the coriander leaves, then top with the rest. Serve with coconut yogurt, if you like.
