Vegan MoFo Day 30: Saucy Chickpeas

I can't believe it's almost the end of MoFo already!  I don't think any of my posts were especially inspiring this year, haha, but it has been great reading everyone else's blogs. I totally forgot how much inspiration blogs can provide for meals.

Case in point, yesterday's dinner.  Coronation chicken used to be a big favourite of mine in my pregan days and since going vegan I've made it with tofu and seitan, but never did I think of using chickpeas, like I saw over on the veghotpot blog yesterday.

I thought this idea was genius so I decided to make my own version.  I didn't add any dried fruit, mine was just about 1/4 cup of soya yoghurt, 1 tsp of korma paste and 1 tbsp of mango chutney, plus a bit of salt.  I added half a tin of chickpeas and served it over a baked potato.  It was awesome!


See ya tomorrow for the last MoFo post.

    1. Dawn, I used shop bought paste (Pataks), but I've made it before with powder that I made myself and it works fine.

  5. This is actually a great idea. I only ever heard of Coronation Chicken after seeing sandwiches in the London Pret-a-Manger--but being veg, I just looked.
