20 Minute Vegan Chickpea Curry // Just A Veg

Hello, Happy Tuesday!

This week is finals week, music recitals, and finishing up classes. With all of that, time to make and prepare meals is a luxury I don’t have (soon I will, summer is coming!). So, quick and easy lunch options are my go-to. The problem is, so many quick options are not the most nutritious, which is why I’m bringing to you this 20 minute Chickpea-Veggie Curry to satisfy you all of the way until dinner!


While it may look like there are a lot of ingredients in this recipe, most of them are just veggies. What is amazing about this recipe is you do not have to use all of the veggies I have listed, and you can add your other favorites! I used carrots, peas, mushrooms, zuchinni, and broccoli, but any 3-5 veggies will work!

Ok, now that I’ve said my spiel, let’s get onto the recipe!

By: Grace // Just A Veg

Servings: 2

Total Time: 20 minutes


1 Tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup chopped carrot

1/4 cup green peas

1/2 zuchinni*

1 cup broccoli

1/3 cup sliced mushrooms

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1/2 cup chickpeas

1 1/4 cup canned diced tomatoes (I love fire roasted ones)

1 Tablespoon onion powder

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons tumeric

pinch of cayenne (more/less for spiciness!)

salt and pepper to taste

2-3 Tablespoons coconut cream

1/2 cup cooked quinoa**

avocado for topping



  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Add desired veggies and saute until soft, but not mushy, about 5 minutes.
  2.  Add your chickpeas, tomatoes, and spices, to the pan, and simmer for 4-5 minutes
  3.  Stir in the coconut cream, using more/less for the amount of creaminess you want.
  4.  Serve, adding about 1/4 cup of cooked quinoa to each bowl.
  5. Top with avocado and enjoy!




*use whatever veggies you love!

**prep quinoa ahead of time and have it in your fridge, it eliminates the extra step of cooking it!
