Summer Chickpea Green Curry Bowls

The creamiest and easiest Summer Chickpea Curry, one of my favorite ways to use up all the end of summer vegetables. You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand and have dinner on the table in less than 40 minutes.

As we head into the last weekend of summer no better way to celebrate than with this dish. This delicious summer curry that’s (almost) vegan, super luscious, creamy, full of garden produce, easy, and all around healthy. No easier way to get in all the colors you need in a  day.

This Curry is a one pot dish and comes together really fast.

To make this Curry:

To start, you’ll cook up the powerhouse veggies and spices of the dish. Just add your carrots, shallots and peppers  in a large skillet over medium-high heat. You’ll cook these up, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes, and then add in the curry paste and garlic and cook for another minute. Add in the Zucchini, corn and ginger cook an additional 3-4 minutes.

At this point, add in the broth, coconut milk, chickpeas and crushed red pepper . Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 5 minutes. You’ll continue cooking this mixture until the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in fish sauce, lime zest and lime juice just before serving.

To serve, I love cooked pad thai noodles you can also use rice and  Top with fresh basil or cilantro – and enjoy!

Make this for a busy week night or even double up and freeze some for a meal later in the month. Either way this delicious curry will become an easy busy day meal.
