Over years of working with children, I have developed a passion for feeding them all (and my own son) with a good mix of healthy food.
This meal is almost as quick as cooking a bowl of pasta, and uses ingredients that you may well have in the cupboard or fridge.
So, quite simply you need a tin of chickpeas, a carrot (or other veg), an onion, 1/4tspn of turmeric, mild chilli, coriander & turmeric & a squirt of tomato puree.
Then, heat some oil or butter in a pan and add the chopped onion & carrot. When they are softened stir in the tomato puree and add the spices. Cook for a minute or so.
Pour in half a cup of water and tip in the can of chickpeas.
Simmer for around 5 minutes.
Serve with naan bread, rice - or just on it's own.
This is a much requested meal by my boy and lots of other children too.
Healthy & quick. Perfect.
