Marrakesh Chickpea & Vegetable Curry

This is a Moroccan curry, but it could also pass for a stew. I have to admit, the first time I came across the original version of this recipe I was a bit skeptical. Orange juice in a veggie curry? I wasn’t sure how it would taste -especially with my healthy adjustments- but I was intrigued to try it out. I’m so glad I did, because it tastes amazing! The combination of cinnamon, curry spices and sweetness from the orange juice, sultanas and sweet vegetables go really well together, and the almonds add a nice change in texture from the rest of the ingredients. It’s also got a really diverse nutrient profile, thanks to all of the different vegetables, and it’s full of vitamin A, vitamin C and calcium. The various veggies also make this a really well-rounded source of phytonutrients (there’s almost every colour of the rainbow packed into this dish!). If you’ve got them, coconut yoghurt and mango chutney go really nicely on top.image3 (3)

Kidney Bean Curry

This curry is bursting with flavour. It’s a powerful immune system strengthener with garlic, ginger, turmeric and vitamin C from capsicum and tomatoes. If you have the time and prefer fresh-cooked food, you can cook up your own kidney beans and use extra fresh tomatoes in place of canned. I top mine with lots and lots of coriander for maximum flavour!
