Top Tips for Making Chickpea Coconut Curry

  • Olive, grapeseed or avocado oil can be used in place of coconut oil — I just think yet another hit of coconut is nice!

  • Fresh cilantro can be used in place of dried — about 1/4 cup.

  • Coconut flour is optional, but really elevates this dish and makes it stand apart. The coconut flour adds to both texture and flavor, but in a pinch, it can be omitted.

  • This dish tastes great served over rice or quinoa, served alongside some naan bread, in a wrap or simply on its own!

  • Chickpea curry can be stored in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to one week. To re-heat simply place in a pot over medium-low heat and cook until warmed throughout.
