This is some good stuff!  Of course, I am eating this recipe on my own because Grumpy absolutely dislikes chickpeas.  He did try it and said it was edible, but he wouldn’t be eating it.  No big deal.  This is going to be my lunch this week for a couple of days and I’m happy with that.

I found this recipe on Cooking Light while searching for vegetarian dishes. It doesn’t matter too much to me that Grumpy won’t eat it because it doesn’t make so much that 1 person couldn’t eat it up in a few days.  Grumpy should be willing to eat chickpeas though, I have read they are good for diabetics.

Healthy and tasty, I am loving the ginger/curry flavor to the dish.  If you like chickpeas and don’t mind curry flavor, then this is a definite dish to have on your regular meal rotation.

    Woo…vegetables curry. I love it. For curry, sometime I add some fresh milk or coconut milk, so the curry becomes creamier. And I like to add potatoes, okra and eggplant to vegetables curry. But if added potatoes, need longer cooking time. 🙂
