- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tbs ground cumin
- 1 tbs ground coriander
- 1 tbs curry powder
- 1 x 400g can no-added-salt chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 zucchini, chopped
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 1 cup frozen green bean
- 400 g can no-added-salt diced tomatoes
- 165 g can reduced-fat coconut milk
- 4 cups steamed rice (from 2 cups uncooked rice)
- Heat oil in a non-stick frypan or pot and fry onions, garlic and spices for 2 minutes.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer with the lid off for 15-20 minutes.

Variation: You can use a variety of vegetables in this curry. Potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and capsicum all work well.
Comment: If you like a mild curry, or your spices are very fresh (and therefore strong), start with half the amount of curry powder, cumin and coriander.
Use the left-over water from cooking vegetables to make stock or soup. It's full of vitamins!
