Chickpea and Lentil Curry

This recipe is super easy and a great recipe to adapt. I sometimes add roasted sweet potato and cauliflower to get in extra veggies which can be seen in the picture. It is a great recipe for a family meal or potluck dinner. It’s definitely my go-to which always goes down such a treat!


  • 1 onion 
  • 6 cloves of Garlic 
  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 1/2 a cup of lentils 
  • Jar of vegan curry sauce
  • spinach 
  • A can of chickpeas 
  • Spices- cumin, paprika, curry powder, turmeric



  1. Fry the chopped onion and garlic in a pan for approx 5 minutes. 
  2. Add the coconut milk and the lentils 
  3. Add the jar of curry sauce, I find this helps to bulk out the curry but you can just use the suggested spices. 
  4. Add 2tsp of curry powder and cumin, 1tsp of turmeric and paprika and salt and pepper for seasoning. 
  5. Allow the curry to cook for ten minutes to let the flavours mix. 
  6. Add the can of chickpeas and continue to stir to ensure the lentils do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Allow to cook for another five minutes. 
  7. Just before the end add a couple of handfuls of spinach. Stir through.

I recommend serving it up with some rice, mango chutney and a spoonful of plain or coconut yoghurt
