This recipe is great for those evenings when you want something warm and comforting to eat after a long day. I typically will make several servings of jasmine rice on my meal prep day to last me several days throughout the week. That’s the same with this curry, it makes quite a few servings so this will be a perfect quick dinner to reheat on the stovetop.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can modify depending on what your craving and/or what you find at the farmer’s markets that week. You could easily use Cauliflower Rice vs. Rice for a lower carbohydrate dish. You could also add in some grilled tempeh or switch out the chickpeas for lentils. I also like to use spinach instead of asparagus at times, which is so tasty!

This recipe, as with all my recipes are guidelines to use. Let your taste buds run the show and consistently check the curry for depth of flavor, flavor combinations, saltiness, sweetness, lemon flavor, etc. The beautiful thing about this dish is you can’t go wrong with what you add to it! Enjoy the process, enjoy the aromas, enjoy the cooking, and of course, enjoy the end product!
