Meat Free Monday: Chickpea Curry

by Angela on June 18, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve done a meat-free recipe post.  But I’ve discovered one that is worth sharing.  If you like curry, you’ll love this recipe!  I’ve made it a few times now.  A couple times I added cubed chicken, but today I made it completely meat-free.  It’s actually an altered version of a recipe I found on (link to original recipe at the bottom of this post).  My modifications make it a little less processed and almost dairy-free (1 Tbs of butter can be replaced by a dairy-free option).  I served this over brown rice with a side of steamed broccoli and thought it was deeee-licious!
