Chickpea Quinoa & Tofu Curry


Chickpea Quinoa & Tofu Curry

w/ Rice Noodles

 

Warm curries make these cold days so much better! The best part about curries is that you can add whatever you like into them & they are easy to make with things around the kitchen. It doesn't call for a lot of ingredients & the flavor comes mostly from the spices. If you don't like coconut milk feel free to use vegetable broth.


This recipe is for 4 people

Ingredients:

1 can Coconut Milk

1 can Chickpeas

2 cakes of Rice (Ramen) Noodles

1 package of Frim, Tofu

½ cup Water

½ cup Quinoa

2 cloves of Garlic

½ tsp Chili Powder

¼ tsp Sea Salt

⅛ tsp Black Pepper

Optional garnish - ½ an Avocado, a few Broccoli Sprouts & Chili Flakes
