Creamy Cashew Chickpea Curry Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes
1½ cups of chickpeas (one 15 oz. can, 425 grams) drained and well rinsed
3 large vine ripe tomatoes, de-stemmed and quartered
½ cup of water
¼ cup of cashews
3 cloves of garlic, smashed and peeled
inch piece of ginger root, skin on and chopped
1 bay leaf
The seeds from 2 black cardamom pods
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (more for spicy)
1Simmer tomatoes, water, cashews, garlic, ginger, bay leaf, cardamom, salt, tomato paste and cayenne in a saucepan on medium heat for 20 minutes. The whole mixture will become soft and pulpy. Discard the bay leaf.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
