15 minute Almond Butter Curried Chickpeas

a healthy dinner for when you’re in a rush

A quick protein packed dinner with a nutty curry flavour. Adding nut butters to curries is seriously underrated and not spoken about enough. The almond butter in this dish adds thickness and creaminess with a nutty kick.

Chickpeas are so versatile and filling. Plus they take hardly any time to cook, making this dish perfect for evenings when you have no time to cook.
Serve with rice/quinoa and veg if you desire. And cook in batches and reheat for the next day.

DISCLAIMER – these may taste EVEN nicer on the second day once they are marinated overnight.
