Quick & Easy Vegan Curry Recipe – Gluten Free!

lucy and lentils vegan curry

Cooking curries has become one of my go-to week night meals. Since I removed the pressure of having the expectation of marinading, cooking for hours and including more spices than I had in my cupboards, it's been such a fun way of using up all of the veggies in my fridge. 

 

The bare essentials I always have:

Coconut milk

Turmeric

Cumin

Coconut Cream 

Garlic

 

 

RECIPE:

1 tin chickpeas

leftover veg (I used half a yellow, green and red pepper)

1 brown onion

3 cloves garlic

handful of tomatoes

1 tin of coconut milk

1 tbsp cumin

1 packer of Schwartz gluten free curry mix (you can use 2 heaped tbsp curry powder)

METHOD:

Simply heat the cumin in a pan, add a glug of coconut oil and fry the chopped onion

Add the rest of the chopped veg and drained chickpeas, then add the minced garlic

Add 1 tin of coconut milk with the Schwartz / curry powder mix

Simmer for 15 minutes then serve with steam rice

The Flapjack Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 cup of medjool dates (approx 10 dates)
  • ½ cup nuts (I used almonds)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 1 bar of 60% Pana Chocolate Bar
  • Generous pinch of sea salt

 

Method

  • Blitz the medjool dates in a food processor to start to break down (add a dash of water if they’re a little dry)
  • Add all the dry ingredients saving, salt and chocolate aside
  • Once combined, check the consistency which should be moist and sticky - if the texture is slightly dry, add ¼ cup more maple syrup and a dash of nut milk
  • Using greaseproof paper, line a small loaf tin and add the mixture, patting down to create a level surface
  • Bake at 180˚C for around 15-18 minutes until it starts to crisp
  • Allow to cool
  • Using a bain marie gently melt the bar of pana chocolate (this shouldn’t take long as it has a low melting point)
  • Pour the chocolate over the baked base and allow to set. Cut into strips approx 5cm apart and enjoy with a cup of coffee
