Unlike the baos, this is definitely a meal you can make on a weeknight. I can personally vouch for it being a satisfying post gym supper. The peanut butter and the chickpeas will fulfil all your protein needs. A much better idea than Brittany’s on the Apprentice – ‘alcoholic protein drinks’ The horror. The recipe was on BBC Good Food.
- 1 onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2.5cm ginger
- 1 tsp coriander
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp fenugreek
- 1 tin chickpeas
- 300ml vegetable stock
- 2 tbsp peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 200g spinach
- 150g rice
1.) Put the rice on to cook
2.) Peel and dice the onion.
3.) Heat the oil and add the onion. Cook for 7 minutes.
4.) Whilst this is cooking, peel and dice the garlic. Peel and grate the ginger.
5.) In a small bowl, add all the spices with 2 tbsp water and stir to make a paste.
6.) Add the garlic and ginger to the onion and fry for one more minute.
7.) Add the paste to the pan and fry for 5 more minutes. Make up the stock.
8.) Stir in the chickpeas then add the stock. Cook for 5 minutes.
9.) Add the peanut butter and stir then add the spinach. Leave for a few minutes until the spinach is wilted.
10.) Serve with the rice.
