As summer comes to a close and the weather gets cooler, it’s the perfect time to start making comfort food. This chickpea curry loaded with hearty veggies will keep you satisfied and full. This curry is high in protein from the chickpeas, high in fiber from the veggies, and satiating thanks to the coconut milk, not to mention its packed flavor from all the spices. 

What we love about this recipe is that it only gets better the next day due to all the flavors having more time to marinate with each other. Serve it over basmati rice or eat it with naan on the side to really complete this meal. If you’re looking to cut down on the fat in this recipe, you can switch out the coconut milk for light coconut milk.
