Recipe 😋 for Squash and Chickpea Curry ...

This recipe for squash and chickpea curry is great for weeknights or weekends. It's a tasty way to eat squash and by adding the chickpeas you are massively increasing the intake of a number of key nutrients. They are both very low fat, starchy vegetables and share common minerals but squash is a massive contributor of Vitamin A, whereas Chickpeas are rich in Molybdenum, a trace mineral that helps the body detoxify sulphites which are used in preservatives. Choose whichever curry paste you like (except Thai) – Madras gives a good rounded flavour. You can use any type of squash, or swap it out for sweet potatoes.
