Adopt a (yummy) GF blogger: Chickpea and Spinach curry


The picture of the Chickpea and Spinach curry really doesn’t do the yumminess any justice.  Like most curries, the beauty lies within…

This super yummy, vegan curry is part of Adopt a GF Blogger, the brainchild of Sea, of Book of Yum.     I’ve wanted to adopt Sea for ages, because I love her healthy, inventive, flavorful GF recipes that usually have an exotic flare.  The most fun part of all of this was going through her (extensive!) recipe index!  The hard part was finding just one to make…but now I’ve marked a couple more for future weeks.  Another great part of her recipe index is that she rates recipes, so that you can figure out which things absolutely HAVE to get made.

The recipe was wonderful, flavorful, and satisfying.  It was so perfect because I *had* to get GF aseofetida powder, and went through this process of hunting it down, then and then I only used it once (ya know, when you want it pretty much because you can’t have it).  So this gave me an opportunity to give it some more use! Another bonus was that I had a bag of frozen tomatoes from my plants last summer, and I’m trying to make my way through all of the frozen foods I’ve stored to make room for the vegetative goodness just around the corner!  Of course, using my own tomatoes made it taste better because anything you plant is just uniquely splendid…just ’cause.

I made the recipe as directed.  The only change I made was using arugula instead of spinach since the cute little market near me was out of spinach.  It was funny, really, how annoyed I was at first, and a good reminder of how much I take having beautiful, organic, fresh foods for granted!

So thanks again, Sea, for all the recipes!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Sea doesn’t call her blog The Book of Yum for nothing. She does have the most flavorful, ethnic recipes that are easy to make. Those curries aren’t the most cooperative food models! They always look so homely and plain, but taste so good. I’ll have to try this one.

  2. Looks delish! Great use for the chickpeas that have been sitting in my pantry! 🙂

    Sounds like the recipe worked out in more ways than one! I’ve never hunted down asafoetida but keep thinking I must. . . this dish sounds great. 🙂

    That sounds just delicious! I love when GF food rocks the clichés and proves the naysayers wrong!

  6. Hi Cheryl, I see this site is a couple years old but glad to have found it. I know of several ‘gluten free’ web sites but seeing recipes that are being actively created — and then tried — very nice. I’ll be sure to grab the RSS feed. I hope you are still updating things here.=)
