Vegetarian chickpea curry is a delicious, healthy and easy recipe to recover from the big festivities for Christmas and New Year. I was visiting friends, and apparently half of Flanders received the new book of Pascale Naessens as a Christmas present : “nog eenvoudiger met 4 ingredienten” / “even simpler with 4 ingredients“.

They proposed me to cook something from her book. I used one of the recipes as a source of inspiration, but ended up with 3 more ingredients and instead of an oven dish I made a wok curry out of it.

Maybe ras el hanout is not directly a familiar ingredient for you. For me it wasn’t either. It is a North African mix of spices with for example ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, coriander, … So if you don’t have it at home you can add some of these.

Pascale Naessens is one the the Belgian television cooks that inspires me regularly. Another recipe from her is this blueberry almond cake.
