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.
