In times of busyness, I turn towards dinners that are filling, nutritious, and super easy to make. This Curry dish fits the bill. It took me 15 minutes to prep and a little longer to let it do its thing on the stove while I cleaned up.

This is where a well-stocked pantry really comes in handy. In my house, I already had all the ingredients except for the cauliflower. A quick run into the store for 1 item and dinner was in the works.

Try these simple, flavorful recipes the next time you’re busyness is catching up with you too.

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large red onion, sliced
1 teaspoon each coarse salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 1-inch knob of ginger, peeled and grated

2 tablespoons curry powder

1 14ounce can of diced tomatoes
1 32ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
