I love a recipe that makes amazing leftovers and this Red Curry Chickpeas & Broccoli Rice recipe is it! I ate this for days and never got tired of it. It is a totally balanced meal with a good amount of protein, tons of veggies & totally satisfying. The red curry coconut sauce is comforting and the rice has so much flavor. This is a must make!

Step One: Make the Red Curry Chickpeas

I love anything in a red curry coconut sauce. And these chickpeas are no exception. The chickpeas are seasoned and then slightly charred in a skillet before being simmered in coconut milk. Super comforting and delicious!

Combine the chickpeas, red curry paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic powder, ginger powder & pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the chickpeas. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until ready to serve. The sauce will thicken as it simmers.

Step Two: Make the Broccoli Rice

I love this rice because it has soooooo many veggies mixed in. And it is a great way to make use of leftover rice in the fridge!

Start by dicing an entire head of broccoli into tiny pieces (this will help it cook faster).

Heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the broccoli, diced onion & carrot and cook down for 3-5 minutes, or until the veggies start to get tender. Add some corn & dry seasonings and cook for another minute.

Pour in the leftover rice, soy sauce & sriracha and mix to combine. Cook for another couple minutes – you want the rice to be heated through and the veggies to be tender. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

To serve, add rice to each bowl and top with the chickpeas – be sure to scoop up some of that red curry coconut sauce. Top everything off with lots of green onion and sesame seeds.

This recipe is cozy, but filling. You get everything you need in one bowl. And the leftovers can be popped in the microwave for a quick lunch the next day!
