Hearty Coconut Chickpea Curry with fresh spinach, a healthy and delicious meat-free curry that is full of flavours. Mild, but lightly spiced, this vegetable curry is so easy to make, and super quick too. Vegetarian and vegan friendly, but even meat lovers will enjoy it too. It's a fantastic midweek dinner idea, and it's ready in about 30 minutes. This Indian style vegan curry is absolutely amazing.
