Tomato & Chickpea Coconut Curry with Wilted Greens & Warm Garlic-Naan Wedges
This creamy vegetarian curry will infuse light and flavour into any day. It melds the wholesome chickpeas with coconut milk, sweet diced tomato and leafy greens simmered until just wilted. You’ll top the curry with toasted coconut and use garlic-oil drizzled naan wedges to scoop it up—and on the side, you’ll serve a fresh green salad strewn with chickpeas and tomato too, to recall the main attraction.
- 1 Tomato
- 90g Baby spinach (or baby kale)
- 2 Garlic cloves
- 20g Ginger
- 15ml Apple cider vinegar
- 36g Mild yellow curry paste
- 400ml Coconut milk
- 540ml Chickpeas (canned)
- 25g Toasted coconut chips
- 2 Naan
Mise en place – Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Small-dice the tomato. Peel and mince the ginger. Mince the garlic.
Start the curry – In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the curry paste, ginger and ½ the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add ⅔ of the small-diced tomato and cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, until softened; season with S&P to taste.
Add the chickpeas – To the pot of curry, add ¾ of the chickpeas and the coconut milk. Simmer, 5 to 7 minutes (9 to 11 minutes for 4 portions), until thickened.
Make the garlic oil & toast the naan – While the curry simmers, in a medium pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions) on medium. Add the remaining garlic and sauté, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Transfer the garlic oil to a bowl. Heat the same pan on medium and, working in batches, toast the naan, 1 to 2 minutes per side, until warmed through. Transfer to a cutting board and drizzle with the garlic oil. Cut the garlic-naan into wedges and set aside.
Make the salad – In a large bowl, combine ½ the apple cider vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add ½ the spinach, the remaining tomato and remaining chickpeas. Toss well.
Finish the curry & serve – To the pot of curry, add the remaining spinach and apple cider vinegar. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until wilted. Divide the finished curry between your bowls. Garnish the curry with the toasted coconut chips. Serve the salad and garlic-naan wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
Tomato & Chickpea Coconut Curry – Final Thoughts
Goodfood did a great job with the veggie menu this past week. Our first recipe of the three was this chickpea curry. I made it yesterday afternoon while baby was napping. It was quick and easy to make. I do notice that some Goodfood recipes are a little more involved than other meal delivery boxes, but the end result is always worth it. However, the curry was fairly easy and had minimal steps. I like that they included a salad and garlic naan to go with the dish as it made for a well-rounded meal. The only thing I added was a little bit of quinoa just to make the portions sizes bigger. Overall it was a great dish and had great flavour.
Forget wasting time at the grocery store. With Goodfood, you get the perfect amount of the best ingredients delivered right to your door.
