We Love Curry

We are a "mostly meatless" family, a term coined by my husband when he wanted to reduce the amount of meat he ate.  I'm always on the lookout for vegetarian or vegan options that are easy and packed with flavor.  I disovered this one on and it delievers on both ease and tastiness!  The whole family LOVES it.  My two boys request it frequently.  I've made a resolution this year to eliminate my use of canned beans.  This is the only part of the recipe that takes much time.  Using canned chickpeas makes this dish come together extremely quickly.  I cannot say enough about the cilantro flavor in this dish.  It is an absolutely amazing compliment flavor. 

Enjoy and easy and flavor-filled meal you can feel good about tonight.
