Zucchini and Potato Chickpea Curry

During the fall and winter months, I’m all about the curries. Red curries, green curries, spicy Indian curries – I love a warm, flavorful, fragrant bowl of curry when it’s chilly out!

But when it’s in the high 80s and sunny, the last thing I want is a curry. There was a little cold front that blew through here for a few days, and I took advantage of it by going to the farmer’s market with the intention of making a curry! Thus, I grabbed zucchinis and potatoes and knew I could make a simple curry with some coconut milk, chickpeas, and curry paste.

Curries are so versatile, that’s what I love about them! Basically, just add in any vegetable or protein you have on hand and you’ll have a new, personalized curry every time! You could definitely add in some shredded chicken here, but I think a tofu would work very nicely and complement the consistency.

And if you’re looking for more curry ideas, here are a few.
