Is it weird that I made this curry solely so that I could have an excuse to eat my vegan naan? Well, I never thought that what I ended up just throwing together would actually turn into one of my favorite go-to weeknight meals. Serve this curry over your favorite rice or grain. I chose to make it with wild rice but you could use jasmine, brown, or basmati. And you cannot have a curry without naan. Of course!

- 1 tbsp olive oil (sub water if oil-free)
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 russet potatoes, cubed into bite-sized pieces

- 2 tsp garam masala
- 3-4 cups fresh spinach
Heat large skillet with olive oil and add diced onion. Cook 3-4 minutes until translucent.
Add garlic cooking for 30 seconds.
Saute potatoes for 5 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking.
Add drained tomatoes (reserving the liquid for later), chickpeas, and spices. Stir to coat.
Add coconut milk, and ⅓ cup of canned tomato juices. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and allow to simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
