Vegan Coconut Chickpea Curry

Chickpea is a great source of protein and fiber. But did you know Fiber may benefit people with diabetes, and the American Diabetes Association recommends chickpeas as a source of dietary fiber? 

If you plan to cook chickpea but find it gassy, here is a tip – rather than opening a can, simply soak them 8 to 12 hours, (I just soak them overnight) but the key to eliminating the gas is draining and rinsing every three-four hours. Yup, you read that right. Drain, rinse and start soaking again.
