15 – Minute Chickpea Curry and Quinoa

15- Minute Chickpea Curry and quinoa is vegan + gluten-free and full of rich flavor and filling. It’s the perfect quick and easy meal.

This curry came about when I had already decided there is nothing to eat, ha! I am usually a salad and protein kinda girl at lunchtime. However, this is going to be a weekly staple! Believe it or not, I never liked curry as a kid. What the heck was I thinking missing out on all the great depth of flavors curry has to offer.

This curry is rich and mildly spicey, it is not an overpowering flavor of curry as I like mine mild. It is a perfect meal prep or just a quick lunch as it will be ready in no time!

Tip: Cook quinoa while you’re prepping the curry it will be ready at the same time.
