Curried Chickpeas

These curried chickpeas are a hearty addition to our meal plan rotation.  Preparation is quick and simple, and the smell of the sweet curry wafting through the house is a welcome addition on a chilly afternoon.  Besides being delicious, it is packed with protein and fiber, and plenty of nutrient-rich vegetables.  We like to serve it with steamed quinoa topped with freshly diced pineapple, tomato, and cilantro. For extra heat,  you can add more curry paste or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. This recipe is also an excellent candidate for preparing in bulk and freezing.
