Creamy Vegan Chickpea Curry with Sticky Coconut Rice

on , in:

A beautifully creamy vegetable curry with sweet coconut sticky rice. This dish is full of nutrients and 100% plant based ingredients- good for your tummy and for your health! We managed to eat all the curry between us (we were super full) but with side dishes, it should feed 3-4 people.

  • 3 x carrots (chopped into small pieces)
  • 6 x close cup mushrooms (chopped into quarters)
