We’ve been making this beautiful dish for years - we took a recipe from the Looneyspoon gals and made it plant-based (there’s calls for chicken). You can serve this on brown rice or cauliflower rice (or a combo of both like I do) - also works to serve it on greens, it’ll just be a bit liquid-esque… I strongly recommend pairing at least partially with some kind of grain.

Serves: 6


3 cups chickpeas, cooked

1 cup chopped onions

1 chopped bell pepper (you pick the colour that sparks fucking joy for you)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 tbsp grated ginger root

1 1/2 tsp each curry and chilli powder

1/2 tsp each turmeric and cinnamon

1 can (14 oz) light coconut milk

1/4 cup mango chutney

Zest of half a lemon

1 large golden delicious apple, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1 inch pieces.**

1/2 cup frozen peas


Get out a skillet with a lid and heat that fucker up.

Chop your veggies up - splash some water into the pan and toss the onions, pepper, and garlic until that shit softens. 3 minutes or so.

While that’s cooking combine your spices and toss them in when ready. Add the coconut milk, mango chutney, and lemon zest. Stir in the chickpeas and apples, simmer and cover for 15 minutes.

Add peas and let sit, uncovered, another 5 minutes. Put that shit on top of a grain or combo of grains.


**Any smaller it’ll get mushy. Also if you don’t have golden delicious then swap that shit out with whatever apples you have handy. I used honey crisp and it was still fucking delicious.
