Most of the time when I cook I’m testing out my new recipes or coming up with random ways to use whatever I have available, but I don’t always make my own recipe. I do try out other people’s recipes that look delicious to me. Today I wanted to share one of those recipes today as it’s become a reoccurring dish in my house.
I’ve never been a big curry fan, but my husband is so when we were dating he kept asking me for a “clean” curry recipe. Since I had never made curry I had no idea where to start to even try to come up with such a thing. Luckily there's quite a few “clean” curry recipes already out there. After searching, and trying, searching, and trying, we finally found one that we both love so much we make it A LOT!
It’s the Crock-Pot Slow Cooker Chickpea Curry from the Lemon Bowl recipe blog. One of my favorite things about it is that I can just throw everything in the crock pot, let it cook and it’s good to go. Simple and easy. But it’s also so hearty and delicious!
A lot of people like to use rice with curry so I made cauliflower rice and it pairs with the chickpea curry so well. If you've never made cauliflower rice, follow this recipe and just leave out the seasonings. The curry packs a little heat so if you’re not keen on spicy I would eliminate the cayenne pepper. I highly recommend you have cilantro to top it with because it’s so good, but you don’t necessarily need the pomegranates or yogurt. I like to top ours with cashew sour cream as it does help to cut the heat.
If you're weary about making curry or intimidated by it – try out this recipe. It doesn’t take a lot of time so it’s great for a weeknight dinner. It also stores and freezes well for leftovers.
