Quick and Easy Chickpea Coconut Curry with Cashews


This recipe is one of my favorite go-to dishes. I love it because it’s super quick and easy to make and who doesn’t like curry? The coconut milk makes it extra creamy without having to use any dairy products. A personal tip: always buy full-fat coconut milk instead of the reduced fat version, the lighter version is usually either the same price of even more expensive, but it’s just regular coconut milk thinned down with water. That’s why I usually use full-fat coconut milk and mix it with vegetable broth or water. Without further ado, here’s the recipe:
