Meatless Monday: Chickpea Coconut Curry

First of all, let me just say sorry so late in the evening... serious DRAMALLAMAS causing commotion at my house today. =-)

Next, let me just say- chickpeas are awesome. Plus their alias is fun to say. GARBANZO BEANS! Seriously, how fun is that!?

Ok, either begin with a can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, or have your own cooked up from dried, about 2 cups.

You'll also want to medium-dice 2 potatoes and get them par-boiling while you sweat up the rest of the ingredients.

In 2 Tablespoons of olive oil, get going an onion (roughly chopped) 2 carrots (roughly chopped) and 2-5 cloves of garlic (minced.)

If your potatoes are half-done, drain them and add to the pot. Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and stir. Adding the turmeric now makes the potatoes all pretty!

Add 1 can of coconut milk. (I like to use "lite".) Also add your chickpeas. Simmer on low until everything is soft, happy, and harmonious. You may add a spoonful of water as needed if it starts getting too thick or burning before soft.

ETA- Serve with rice! =-)
