This is a quick and simple vegetarian curry with lots of flavor, tons of protein, and not alot of fat. I recommend using a real flavorful, mild curry powder, or one that you've mixed yourself. My "Simple, Sweet and Mild Curry Blend" works well with this dish. However,if you do like heat, feel free to add some cayenne or crushed red pepper to suit your taste.
- 1 -2 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup chopped onion (scallion work well too)
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 2 -3 teaspoons curry powder (for this recipe, I like a milder curry powder that has a bit of fennel seed)
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1⁄3 cup chopped fresh cilantro or 1⁄3 cup parsley
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Add onion and ginger and saute about 3 minutes, or until tender.
- Add curry powder and stir to coat onions evenly.
- Add tomatoes with their juices and cook 1-2 minutes or until mixture seems slightly thickened, stirring well.
- Add black beans, chickpeas and salt to taste.
- Stir to coat beans evenly.
- Cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until chickpeas are heated through.
- Turn off heat, and stir in fresh cilantro (or parsley), and lemon juice.
- Serve warm.
- This dish goes nicely over some jasmine or basmati rice.
DELICIOUS! This is so similar to a chickpea curry that I already make, minus the black beans, and with an addition of garlic. I increased the amount of curry powder to our tastes and I had to use fresh tomatoes as I didnt have any canned available! The lemon juice is essential! Such a quick and delicious dish! Thanks becky! We loved it!
Very tasty! I have been looking for bean/veggie dishes for my DASH diet and this one is a great one. I did add some carrots. Next time I will remember the lemon juice.
Just as described; quick, simple and tasty! I love that this uses items that I almost always have in the house. I made this as written, using both the cilantro and the parsley. The fresh lemon juice was a great finishing touch. Thanx for posting this!
