you guys, i feel bad. i left you for a week, and now all i have to offer is this boring, but tasty lunch. at least there's a pretty picture. look:
i don't even remember everything that was in here, but the basic idea is this--saute veggies (i apparently used carrots. i think there were some onions in there too) in olive oil. add a sprinkle of curry powder (i used both sweet and hot. but be careful! i added way too much and this was too spicy. i ate in anyway, but i was tearing up by the time i finished), half a can of chopped tomatoes with juices, a handful of baby spinach, half a can of chickpeas (drained), and a sprinkle of cinnamon, plus a tiny sprinkle of chili powder if you want it spicier. stir, and enjoy topped with chutney (mine was cilantro chutney. yummy! but also kind of spicy, not the cool, refreshing antidote to the spicy curry, which is what i was expecting. lesson learned: taste things before throwing them onto your lunch) and cashews.
