Green chickpea vegetable curry

I’m sure many of you who work full-time understand this already but after a busy day at work it’s difficult to find the motivation to cook a healthy meal.

Since starting my internship in Melbourne last week, I’ve realised the way to tackle this problem is to be organised. The more prepared I am at the start of the week, the easier it is to eat healthily during the week. As there are no excuses not to eat healthy when I have all the ingredients in the fridge!

Green curry paste

I bought this curry paste from Coles in the Asian section. It’s a healthy yet convenient way to add instant flavour to your meal.

Cooking away…

I understand traditional curries require hours of cooking however this is an easy recipe that requires limited cooking time and is full of flavour!

Full of greens

What is great about this curry is that you can use whatever vegetables you have – feel free to add some chicken if you want too!

Quick, healthy curry

This curry can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for two days – or great for lunch the next day!
