Chickpea, Carrot & Lemon Curry

Chickpea, Carrot & Lemon Curry

Who doesn’t love a meal that cooks itself while you’re at work or out in the great outdoors enjoying yourself? Ginger and Turmeric provide some nice anti-inflammatory activity while the Lemon gives a nice tangy cut-through for the richness of the coconut milk. Comfort food at its best. Tip: Buy tinned chickpeas if you’re short on time.
