A satisfying and flavorful vegan curry dish, ready in 30 minutes!
- 2 Tbsp. grape seed oil
- 1 medium onion diced (about 1/2 cup)
- 1.5 inches fresh ginger peeled, grated
- 1 Tbsp. garlic minced
- 2 Tbsp. curry powder
- 14.5 oz. fire roasted, petite diced tomatoes drained

Heat the oil in a large saucepan, then add the onion and ginger. Cook over medium-high heat until softened (about 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Then add garlic and continue cooking for about 1 minute. Add the curry powder, mix well, and cook until fragrant (less than 1 minute).

Turn off heat and stir in the spinach, mixing until wilted.
Transfer to a bowl, serve, and enjoy!
Can I use dried chickpeas instead of canned? Yes, you may use chickpeas that have been cooked from dried beans. You will need about 1 1/2 cups of cooked chickpeas.
What kind of curry powder do you use? I know my answer to this may not be common, but I really only ever have Jamaican-style curry powder in my pantry. I use it all the time and we love the flavor! But you can really use any kind that you prefer.
