I cook several meatless meals for my family every week, and often I serve this flavorful version of Chickpea and Spinach Curry. Using canned chickpeas and bagged spinach makes this an easy preparation and the only real work involved is caramelizing the onions.
I like to peel, slice and caramelize a whole bag of onions and then freeze one-cup portions for later use. The step makes a good curry just a few minutes away.
Spiced Basmati Rice or Basmati Pilaf (both recipes are on this site) are perfect accompaniments to this vegetarian curry.
Chickpea and Spinach Curry
Heat the ghee or oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Stir in the remaining except the spinach and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the spinach, cover and cook until spinach is wilted. Taste and add more lemon juice, salt and pepper, if needed. Garnish with the chopped cilantro.
Makes 6 side-dish servings or 3 main-dish servings.
