Vegetable & Chickpea Curry

Pin It

I have recently become obsessed with coconut milk and have been pouring it into just about every meal these past few weeks. No joke.

I absolutely love the combination of coconut milk, curry powder and tomatoes - such a great flavor that is oh-so comforting. You can imagine my excitement when I found this recipe for Vegetable & Chickpea Curry that makes use of a slow cooker...my true love!


This dish does require a fair amount of chopping/dicing as preparation, as well as a bit of sauteing to begin. But the satisfaction you get when you can literally just throw everything in the slow cooker and forget about it, totally makes up for it. Just stir in the coconut milk and spinach right before eating and serve with brown rice - a simple meal that will warm you up during these chilly winter months!
