Curry Chickpeas

Curry Chickpeas, Rice, and Broccoli

Last updated: September 2023

This recipe is the perfect mid-week vegetarian meal for me. It is quick and very easy to make. I find it to be very delicious and very filling - both of which are important to me. It's a great healthy dinner recipe, especially when you have had a long day at work and don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen.

Chickpeas are a good addition to a renal diet for someone living with chronic kidney disease. They are very low in potassium and a very good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Rice is also a great choice for someone living with CKD as it is low in sodium and potassium.
