This easy and healthy almond chickpea vegetable curry is the perfect vegan weeknight dinner recipe. Full of flavors, vitamins, and super delicious.

I look forward to our vegan weeknights. These are the days when I make sure to add a lot of vegetables to our unique dishes and make them extra delicious. Actually, I have to because I have two very honest toddlers at home. They love vegetables but of course not all of them. Like we do, they eat with their eyes, so these are the times when I make the meal extra colorful and simply aesthetically pleasant.

ingredients for the easy and healthy almond chickpea vegetable curry

  • Chickpeas.

    Our source of protein in this meal. But chickpeas can do so much more than provide you with protein, they have an extraordinary nutritional profile. They contain a good amount of Fiber, Folate, Manganese, and Copper. Because of the protein and fiber, you might feel full for a long time, which is what we want.

    I love to use different colors. Summer squash is a perfect source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You can read more about the health benefits of zucchini here

how to store this simple vegan weeknight dinner

The almond chickpea curry can be stored in containers. If you’re putting it hot in the container, wait until it’s cold before putting the lid on.
After it cools off you can put it in the fridge for about 4 days. I would recommend adding some caraway seeds to avoid bloating.
