    Yummy, simple and idiot proof :)

    Absolutely amazing, I used frozen spinach too and added it when you add in the chickpeas and comes out just as good

    Yum! Make a note to save the Cilantro to add last and I used fresh tomatoes and a can of Rotel. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly, served it on a bed of rice with sour cream. I'm going to try quinoa with creme fraiche next time

    Very easy to make, tasted good. I used canned tomatoes, but it made the meal a bit too watery, so next time will have to use something else.

    So delicious and easy. I made it in the crock pot and added the spinach and cilantro at the end. My kids even loved it and we aren’t vegetarians or vegans.

    This was so yummy! Thought it wouldn’t be flavourful or spicy enough, but it was just enough of everything! And it was given to my family who are Indian who also loved it! Will deffo double up the ingredients and make more next time! ☺️

    Both me and my husband adore this recipe! We have it with a jacket potato each! I can’t say I’m totally healthy as I love to add cheese to my jacket too! But it is amazing!! I’m a full blown meat eater but could be vegan forever on this!

    This turned out great I loved it the cayenne pepper added a nice touch of spice to it and I love a little spice but not too much and this has just enough but I will definitely be making this one again and again and again for sure this is aa hit for me!
    Was very simple and fun, a great dish if you are starting to cook or play with spices, remember to wash your coriander 😝

    So simple I'd definitely make this again. Used garam masala instead of cumin and it worked nicely

    Great! Perhaps a spoon of sweetener to counteract the acidity of the tomatoes but otherwise the spice combo is perfect

    Super tasty and easy to make. I didn’t have any cayenne pepper but added chilli powder and it tasted great. Defiantly will make again and maybe add more vegetables

    Great with kale instead of spinach & reduced cayenne to one-quarter tsp.

    Very tasty. Allow more than 10 minutes first time around but now I know what to prep, it will be easy next time.

    Great taste and mouth feel. Very filling served with rice and a green salad. Don’t use the oil and use a low fat spray and this is SW free food

    Comforting. I have added a stock cube which helped.

    I altered it slightly by adding a few additional spices. However it was really nice. I accompanied it with sweet potato fries and broccoli rice
