A Spinach Hummus Turn Into A Spinach Curry!

image

I went into my kitchen with the intention of making some more hummus but finished with a curry?  Seriously how does that happen? Well in my case I saw extra lovely ingredients that just had to be used so this is how my final dish came about. 

A great one for all, but even more so for toddlers when introducing them to new flavours.  Either on its own, used as a dip or with some rice.  Healthy, hearty and good food! Always a great option to keep our little ones happy!

I do hope however to bring you some more new hummus creations soon.  I hope everyone has a relaxing and positive week.  See you tomorrow! Much love D x

INGREDIENTS

300g baby spinach
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
1 tin chickpeas rinsed & drained
10 cherry tomatoes
½ cup tomato passata
Salt to taste
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp butter/low fat butter spread
½ tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander & cumin powder
⅓ tsp turmeric powder
Pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp chana masala
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

METHOD

• In a food processor blend the chickpeas and spinach together to get a grainy paste.  Take out of the processor and set aside

• Rinse the processor container and blend the cherry tomatoes, onion and garlic until you get a thick sauce

• In a large saucepan heat up the oil and butter on a medium heat with the cumin seeds and asafoetida.  Once the seeds start to sizzle, gently pour the fresh blended tomato sauce and mix well with the oil

• Add all the seasoning and spices and lower the heat to a gentle simmer.  Pour in the passata to give the curry base more colour.  Cook the sauce for 5 minutes, stirring frequently

• Now take the chickpea and spinach paste and stir into the sauce.  Combine well.  Cover and cook the curry for 15-20 minutes on a very low heat.  Squeeze over a little lemon juice

• Serve with naan bread or some basmati rice! Enjoy!

  1. I made a spinach and lentil curry for lunch today with nearly the same ingredients with the addition of sweet potatoes. This looks yummy! I’m going to give it a go 🙂

  2. This is such an interesting combination! Thanks for inspiring me to try something outside the box.. =) I am sure to experiment more after reading your recipe and feedback here.
