Vegetarian chickpea curry is a delicious, healthy and easy recipe to recover from the big festivities for Christmas and New Year. I was visiting friends, and apparently half of Flanders received the new book of Pascale Naessens as a Christmas present : "nog eenvoudiger met 4 ingredienten" / "even simpler with 4 ingredients".
They proposed me to cook something from her book. I used one of the recipes as a source of inspiration. But ended up with 3 more ingredients and instead of an oven dish I made a wok curry out of it.
Maybe ras el hanout is not directly a familiar ingredient for you. For me it wasn't either. It is a North African mix of spices with for example ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, coriander, ... So if you don't have it at home you can add some of these.
As a flexitarian, I love all dishes with a good taste. Whether it be fish, meat, vegetarian, vegan or any other diet. If you are looking for some more vegetarian inspiration on surprising.recipes, please have a look at the following ideas:
