6 Ingredient Vegan Chickpea Curry. This Easy Vegan Chickpea Curry recipe is so delicious, mixing red curry paste, coconut milk, red bell pepper, Yukon gold potatoes and chickpeas.

Aside from the potato and red pepper, you can keep everything on hand in your pantry or freezer. I make my own red curry paste, but the kind in a jar or tub works just as well. This is the brand I get when I buy pre-made curry paste.

Now, there are two other *optional* ingredients: salt and brown sugar. I love curry, so the rich flavors from the paste are enough for me. But, I know that everyone’s palates are a bit different, so if the curry tastes a little dull, sprinkle in some salt (start with ¼ teaspoon) or brown sugar (1 Tablespoon should do it).

6 Ingredient Vegan Chickpea Curry Recipe

I made this vegan chickpea curry as a super easy 30-minute meal for Meatless Monday. The trick is to dice your potatoes up pretty small so they cook quickly and almost melt in your mouth. There’s not much worse than an under-cooked potato, am I right?

This easy chickpea curry is great served over rice, but if the idea of potatoes AND rice at the same meal freaks you out, you can grab some flat bread to go along with it, or make this Indian Naan Bread at home.

  1. Any recommendations on altering this f0r a single person serving? C0uld I freeze the recipe and defrost as I needed it? And if yes, how w0uld I defr0st it?

    1. Hi, Alex! I haven’t tried to freeze this recipe yet, so I’m not sure how it would turn out. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes!

  2. I made this last week, WOW was it good! My boyfriend high-fived me after the first bite! Next time I would add more veggies (maybe zucchini and more red pepper) but you can’t go wrong with such a simple, fast, and flavorful recipe. I served this over brown rice and it was incredibly good!
