Curry Garbanzo Beans And Greens

Beans are common in a vegan or vegetarian kitchen. They are also common in many different regions of the world. Indian curry dishes are great because they are highly flavorful and can be made spicy if you prefer some heat to your meals.

There are many curry blends available on the market but it is not hard to make your own. A well stocked spice rack is a cooks best friend!
