Crockpot Chickpea and Quinoa Curry

As I learn to cook, I stick to a lot of recipes, but this weekend, I couldn’t find anything that resembled exactly what I wanted, so I developed my own.

For lunches, I love to throw something together in one big pot, wait a few hours, and voila! I also like to include vegetarian options as I tend to eat a lot of chicken for dinners and it helps mix things up!

In a crockpot:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 cups water
  • vegetables of choice (I went with broccoli, cauliflower, and red pepper)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • (one may want onions, but I find them to be YUCK)

Throw everything together, stir, cook on low for 4 hours.

This provided me 5 servings- perfect for the week!
