These braised chickpeas in coconut milk make the perfect vegetarian entree and you will never believe that the dish comes together in under 30 minutes. Everything starts with onion, ginger, garlic, and a touch of red pepper flakes. Then then chickpeas are cooked until they begin to brown to deepen their flavor. Finally the spinach and coconut milk finish things off to make a creamy, flavor packed dish. While I didn't add curry to this dish, you definitely could add either curry powder or curry paste.
