Vegan Chickpea Curry

I spent about a year or two being a subpar vegan. Although I am no longer a vegan, I still love love love this meal. The coconut milk makes this recipe comforting and creamy. This is similar to a chickpea tomato curry because this recipe does contain crushed tomatoes, but the zucchini and kale take it to the next level.

The directions for how to make this delicious recipe are below but here’s a quick video from my Pinterest on how to make this yummy curry recipe.
