Cauliflower and Chickpea Curry | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

This delicious Slimming friendly cauliflower and chickpea curry is full of vegetables and ready in under an hour. It can be batch cooked if you need a quick and easy dinner for later in the week. This unofficial recipe is perfect for any one following Slimming World, Weight Watchers or a calorie controlled diet.

This speedy curry is full of warming spices with a spicy kick of heat, you can adjust the heat if you wish by adding more or less chilli.  If you are serving this to the kiddos then I would recommend using half the chilli. Usually we would be creating this recipe with full fat or coconut cream… but being that it is mega Slimming friendly we are substituting with Muller light Coconut yoghurt. This still helps to retain the creaminess and give it a sweet coconut kick.

This curry is ready in under an hour and is the perfect batch cook dish. I would say there is easily enough here to divide into 4 servings. Which means you can either eat the same day with the whole family or keep 3 further portions for a cheeky lunch or quick easy dinner.  In fact I think it tastes even better the next day, so making it a day ahead can actually be a good idea.
