Curried Chick Peas and Green Peas

I love this recipe. It comes together very quickly, and it's also budget friendly! Feel free to tinker with the ingredients... perhaps subbing cauliflower for the peas? or...? Just about any veggie combination would work. That's the beauty of curry.

You'll Need:
Olive Oil
1 Large Onion {diced}
2 Garlic Cloves {crushed, minced, or otherwise smooshed}
2 Cans Chick Peas {drained and rinsed}
1 Cup Frozen Green Peas
1 Can Tomato Sauce {sizes vary from 15 to 20 oz.--the size of a soup can}
1 Cup Water
1 1/2 Tbsp. Curry Powder {I use this kind}
Cilantro {remove leaves from stems, discarding stems, and chop the leaves roughly}

To Make:
Heat olive oil in a large skillet or cast-iron pan.
Saute onion for several minutes, and then add garlic and stir in. Cook another minute or two.
Add chick peas, green peas, tomato sauce, water, and curry powder, stirring to combine.
Mix in a good handful of cilantro leaves, or more if you really love cilantro like I do.
Cover and cook on medium-low heat for at least 20 minutes. I like to let mine simmer for quite a while, or better still, add everything to the crock-pot and let it cook for several hours.
Serve over rice and top with additional cilantro if you'd like.
