The Honeybears’ Favourite Meal

Whilst children’s tastes and favourite meals often change, we find a firm favourite with our Honeybear children is our spinach and chickpea curry.  This lovely tasty dish which is highly nutritious only takes 20 minutes to make from start to finish.  So we thought we would share our recipe with our parents, in case you would like to try it home!  The quantities listed below serve four adults.

  • 2 tbsp mild curry paste
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 400g can cherry tomatoes
  • 2 x 400g cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 250g bag baby leaf spinach
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • steamed basmati rice to serve

Heat the curry paste in a large non-stick frying pan. Once it starts to split, add the onion and cook for 2 mins to soften. Tip in the tomatoes and bubble for 5 mins or until the sauce has reduced.  Add the chickpeas and some seasoning, then cook for 1 min more. Take off the heat, then tip in the spinach and allow the heat of the pan to wilt the leaves. Season, add the lemon juice, and serve with basmati rice.
