1/3 Vegan: Curried Garbanzo Beans

46% of Americans’ food-based emissions are produced by 20% of the US population. Why? They eat more meat.

If you’re not ready to give up meat but want to reduce your contribution to global warming,* one way is to aim to make 1/3 of your diet vegetarian and 1/3 vegan. If you want to eat meat during the other 1/3, you’ve at least removed some animal products from your diet.

Here’s a vegan dish that works well for us. It’s a good reason to make mango chutney a pantry staple.


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c vegetable broth
  • 2 cans of drained and mashed garbanzo beans
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 jar mango chutney
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • cooked rice or naan


  1. Sauté onions in broth.
  2. Add beans, spice, and chutney.
  3. Mix in tomatoes.
  4. Serve over rice or with naan.

*This is no way should draw your attention away from the fact that corporations are the major polluters of our world.
