Absolutely! Chickpeas are a fantastic source of many vitamins and minerals and are also loaded with fiber.

How to make Cauliflower Chickpea Curry

 Sautee

Heat up the oil in your instant pot on the sautee mode, adding the pepper and cooking for a couple of minutes. Next, add in the tomatoes, coconut milk and curry paste, stirring until everything is dissolved. Bring it to a full boil.

Stir

In a small bowl, whisk the tapioca starch with some of the hot liquid from the pot, then stir it back into the instant pot along with the soy sauce and coconut sugar. Now it’s time to stir in the chickpeas and cauliflower. 

Cook

Place the lid on the instant pot and cook on manual high pressure, letting it release naturally once the cook time is complete. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice, to taste.

Serve

Garnish your curry with some cilantro and green onion and DEVOUR!

Serving Suggestions

This curry has ALL the flavor, so I recommend serving it over a serving of rice, cauliflower rice, lentils or quinoa. All have mild flavor and are PERFECT for sopping up all that curry goodness! Check out how to cook cauliflower rice for a few pointers, too.

Cauliflower Chickpea Curry Storage

If you have leftover curry, or simply made up a  double batch for leftovers, I’m going to outline how to store it best! This curry will last in the fridge in an airtight container for about 3 days, making it the perfect make-ahead lunch or dinner for those busy days. In the freezer, I recommend storing it in a freezer style ziploc bag or a freezer safe airtight container for up to 3 months. Be sure to label it with the date you made it!

Notes

*You need to squeeze out as MUCH moisture as you can from the tomatoes. So, make sure you open the can and keep pressing on the tomatoes, squeezing them out to get as much liquid out as possibly. If you don’t, the curry isn’t as thick and creamy!**I have not tried this with curry powder. I am sure you could use it – I just can’t tell you exactly how much. Also, you would need to add it in when sauteing the red pepper if you try it,
