Looking for the perfect nourishing meal that is fast, vegan, and tastes heavenly good? This awesome, quick, and healthy creamy chickpea coconut curry is the answer. It can be made in less than 10 minutes, faster than takeout.

We all need at least three fast-made recipes that can save our night. On busy days when you need more time and nerves to spend much time in the kitchen, we like to eat fast food or just put some highly processed food in the oven because we think it is easier and faster to make. But that is not true. If you like to have fast food because you're craving it, that's okay for me. But consider having something other than fast food on those days because you think it's easier and less time-consuming.
This awesome and healthy creamy chickpea coconut curry is an example of a fast-made dish that does not sacrifice the nourishing, filling, and taste.

Ingredients for the creamy chickpea coconut curry

  • Chickpeas. You can prepare the chickpeas the night before or use canned chickpeas.
  • Spinach. Fresh washed spinach for the color and to get some iron, magnesium, and calcium, to name a few.
  • Onion. I love using red onion for this recipe, but yellow onion also works well.
  • Bell pepper. Just ¼ to give the dish some flavor.
  • Parsley. Freshly chopped Parsley will add some flavor to this beautiful dish. Parsley is a good source of vitamin A and folate.
  • Cilantro. One of the most essential ingredients for adding flavor. It has many health benefits, including helping to lower blood sugar, providing immune-boosting antioxidants, and lowering cholesterol.
  • Garlic. I recommend one fresh garlic clove, but if you don't have fresh garlic at home, use half a teaspoon instead. I also prefer fresh garlic, as it can help reduce blood pressure and is a source of vitamin B6, manganese, and fiber.
  • Tomato paste. I recommend using organic tomato paste.
  • Tomatoes. You can use fresh or canned tomatoes.
  • Coconut cream. It's high in saturated fats and a good source of fiber.
  • Lime. We need something sour to bring the dish to the next level. There is nothing better than fresh lime juice. It can promote healthy skin and help prevent kidney stones.
  • Spices. Turmeric, paprika, pepper, brown sugar, salt, chili flakes, caraway seeds.


  1. This dish is very simple to cook but very complex in taste. If you are cooking for different people, some of whom don't eat spicy food, just sprinkle the chili flakes before serving on the plates. This will prevent complaints.
  2. For an extra kick, sprinkle some lemon juice before eating it; it's perfect.
  3. To keep it on the healthiest level, I always use fresh ingredients.
