Curried Chickpeas and Quinoa

For those who are following along at home, you know that one of my "resolutions" this year was to try a new recipe each week. This week I made Curried Chickpeas and Quinoa. It was a recipe I adapted from one I found somewhere (sorry so vague. I can't even remember where I found it!). This was super easy and one that can be changed easily depending on your likes.

First, dice an onion. In a skillet over medium heat, soften the onion. Add about 1 TBSP minced garlic. Continue to cook about 1 minutes. Add in 1 can chickpeas, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 cup cooked quinoa, some curry (I added 2 TBSP. That was alot. Probably 1 would have been fine) and some chopped cilantro. Allow everything to cook together for 5-10 minutes more. The other thing I added to this which was not in the original recipe was shrimp. I had some cooked frozen shrimp on hand and after thawing, I squeezed a little lime juice over them and added a little sea salt. I stirred those in with the other ingredients.

Next time I make this I will try adding a bunch of spinach when I stir in the tomatoes. Allow it to wilt down and this will add some nice color to the dish. Good stuff!!
