Chickpea & Broccoli Tikka Masala

Chicken tikka masala is one of my favorite dishes to order at Indian restaurants, but as I am trying to slowly cut back on my animal product intake, I decided to try this twist on it instead. Behold, a vegetarian version, with chickpeas for protein and some broccoli for added healthy points! I enjoyed the final product a lot more than I expected, and would recommend it for anyone looking for a vegetarian version of the dish!



1 cup cooked chick peas

1 tsps of garam masala

1/2 cup natural greek yogurt (unsweetened)

1 head of broccoli, stems chopped off

1 tsp finely grated ginger

1/2 diced white onion

1 can crushed tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato paste

1/2 cup whole milk

chopped cilantro to garnish


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Sauté onions and broccoli until softened.
  2. Add garlic, crushed tomatoes, ginger, tomato paste and garam masala to the pan and simmer, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once the sauce is simmering, add the chick peas. Stir in and cook for another 5 minutes or so on medium heat.
  4. Turn heat to low and stir in greek yogurt and milk.
  5. Serve over basmati rice with cilantro as a garnish! Yum!
