Turmeric Chickpea Bowl Recipe


  • 1.5 cups rice (uncooked)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 tablespoons turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 big cauliflower head
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh coriander or parsley


            1. Rice: Combine water, rice, onion, garlic, turmeric and ginger in a pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until the fluid is absorbed, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let it stand, covered for 10 minutes.
            2. Meanwhile, prepare cauliflower & chickpeas: Boil the cauliflower (or steam) for about 7 - 10 minutes. 
            3. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add curry powder and mix it in well. 
            4. Add chickpeas and yellow bell pepper. Cook it while stirring, until chickpeas are slightly crispy, 3 to 5 minutes.
            5. Add the cauliflower to the chickpea-mixture in the pan. 
            6. Serve the chickpea mixture over the rice. Garnish with coriander/parsley, if desired.

                      • Replace the chickpeas with beef mince or chicken strips (or a vegetarian meat alternative). 
                      • For a creamier version, add 1 can of coconut milk and an extra teaspoon of curry powder.
