This is an easy and flavourful dish that keeps well as leftovers. The coconut milk allows the sun-dried tomatoes to really shine and creates a depth of flavour.

I usually serve this over plain rice with a side of roasted sweet potato (seasoned with cumin, chili powder, tumeric, and salt, roasted at 425 for 15-20min).


  • 2 teaspoons oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced

  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped *

  • 4 large cloves garlic, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger

  • Finely grated zest of 1 large lemon

  • 1 hot red pepper, or pinch red pepper flakes

  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas

  • 1 pound baby spinach

  • 1 (13 to 14-ounce) can coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more as needed

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more as needed

  • Fresh cilantro leaves (optional garnish)


Heat the oil or ghee in a large, deep Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until the onion is beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

Add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh ginger, lemon zest, and red pepper, if using. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the chickpeas and cook over high heat for a few minutes, or until the chickpeas are beginning to turn golden and are coated with the onion and garlic mixture.

Toss in the spinach, one handful at a time. This will take about 5 minutes; stir in a handful or two and wait for it to wilt down and make room in the pot before adding the next handful.

When all the spinach has been added, add the coconut milk, lemon juice, ground ginger, and salt. Bring to a simmer, then turn down the heat and cook until the chickpeas are warmed through, about 10 minutes.

Taste and season with more salt and lemon juice if needed.

Heat the oil or ghee

Ghee isn’t vegan. It is clarified butter, made of cow’s or buffalo’s milk.
