I have a new #meatlessmonday meal for you that you don’t want to miss! Instant Pot Red Curry Chickpeas.

If you’re looking for a new meatless Monday bomb AF recipe- you’ve landed in the right spot. These Instant Pot Red Curry Chickpeas are seriously bursting with flavor. Anything curry and i’m in, but this one is no joke SO easy and SO incredible! We start off by sautéing some shallots, garlic, and ginger in butter (um, ok.. my mouth is watering already), and then we go on to add in all of the delicious spices, chickpeas, tomato sauce, and a little broth. Cook it high pressure for 6 minutes, stir in a little coconut milk and lime juice, and voila! It’s that easy!

I like to serve with rice, fresh cilantro, and naan, and it’s sooo yummy. In the post I wrote last week about the 40 must have items from Trader Joes, I mentioned the Organic Jasmine Rice and frozen Garlic Naan Bread that I keep in my freezer at all times, and here they are again making an appearance!

This meal is so simple and can be made ahead if you’d like! Once the Red Curry Chickpeas are finished cooking in the instant pot, you can either store in the fridge for later, or quickly heat up some rice and naan bread for a super fast meal. SO GOOD! Enjoy!!!
