Vegan | Make ahead | Good to freeze | Serves 1
1 tbsp coconut oil
1⁄2 onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper
2 tsp garlic–ginger paste
1⁄2 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 x 400g tin of chickpeas
2 handfuls of spinach leaves
squeeze of lemon juice
handful of coriander leaves

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Chuck in the onion, along with a pinch of salt. Cook for 6 minutes until soft.
Stir in the garlic–ginger paste, turmeric and garam masala. Cook for 1 minute, stirring until it smells fragrant.
Turn up the heat, chuck in the tomatoes and the tin of chickpeas with all of their water. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, then leave the curry to bubble away for 5 minutes.
Drop in the spinach leaves. Once wilted, take the pan off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice to taste. Spoon into a bowl, stir through most of the coriander leaves, then top with the rest. Serve with coconut yoghurt, if you like.
