I recently tried out a new Slimming World vegan curry recipe and I absolutely loved it. The Chickpea and Spinach curry is super easy to make and is delicious. The recipe is completely free on Slimming World and feeds four people. 


Ingredients

  • fry light or alternative low calorie spray
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red pepper and 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 crushed garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp of ginger
  • 2 tbsp of curry powder (heat dependent on personal taste)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 x 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2 x 400g chickpeas
  • large bag of spinach
  • salt and pepper
  • lime juice

To start chop the onions and peppers into small chunks.
Spray a non-stick frying pan and add the onions and peppers on a high heat.
Leave till lightly brown (approx 5 mins).
Crush the garlic and add it to the pan along with the spices.

Place the cooked onions, peppers and garlic into a large saucepan.
Add the chopped tomatoes and chickpeas to the saucepan.
Bring to boil and then leave to simmer for ten minutes.
Gradually add the spinach and leave to simmer for a further 8-10 mins.

Add the lime juice and serve with rice.

I also made some Vegetarian Slimming World Onion Bhajis. These can be made while you wait for the curry to cook. 

Ingredients

  • 2 onions
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper

Chop the onions into thin slices.
Mix the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and mix for 15 mins.
Separate the mix into balls and oven cook for 15-20 mins on 220°C/fan 200°c/Gas 7.

Once cooked these Onion Bhajis are only two syns each and they taste great.
They work really well with the curry and make the perfect healthy dish.
