This red pepper chickpea curry is a simple vegan and gluten free dinner that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes making it a great meal for busy weeknights.
This red pepper chickpea curry just became my new favorite quick and easy dinner meal! Seriously, it is less than 10 ingredients and other than a quick puree in the food processor, it can all made in just one pan. Plus, you can make it in 30 minutes or less and it is gluten free and vegan as well. Having a simple meal like this one in your back pocket is great for busy weeknights.
We had some leftovers of this dish that I packed in my lunch for work the next day and I think it tasted even better after sitting in the fridge for a night. I added a bit of harissa for some spice and I highly recommend it! If you are vegan, you can serve this curry as is over brown rice. We added a few crumbles of feta cheese when serving which was extra delicious.
