Chickpea Thai Curry
If you’re like us, and sometimes looking for meals we can create without meat, look at some options that include beans (legumes) and rice. The combination of the two, creates complete proteins. This means that there is a good proportion of the 9 essential amino acids present that we need to fuel the body. Because our bodies cannot make these on it’s own, it is very important to make sure you are consuming the foods your body NEEDS.
Here is a super simple recipe for Chickpea Thai Curry:
1 can Chickpeas (drained & rinsed)
1-2 cups Basmati or Jasmine rice
1-1.5 cups of Thai Curry sauce
1/2 White onion (chopped)
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Black pepper
1-3 tsp Cinnamon
A few Mint leaves (minced)
* We also used a pre-made Thai Curry sauce, but to make home made use:
1 can Coconut milk
1-2 tbsp Red curry paste
1-2 tbsp Lime juice
1-3 Shallots of garlic (minced)
1. Boil water for rice
2. Put 2 tsp of coconut oil in a pan, then place chickpeas, onions, and seasonings in, as well. Sauté them until they start to brown and crisp up. While that’s going, add rice to boiling water and cook for desired time.
3. Add Thai Curry sauce to the chickpeas and onions and let it heat up.
4. Place rice in a bowl and top with the chickpeas, sauce, and mint leaves.
* Siiiiddeeee Noooooteeee!
This meal obviously doesn’t have greens included in it. So when this occurs we try and make sure that we do get our greens with “Amazing Grass Green Superfood Immunity“ Blend. There’s literally so many nutrients, I can‘t even list them all here! But definitely look into something like this if you have a hard time getting all your greens & micronutrients.
