Curried Vermicelli With Chickpeas

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by emcmonnies

From "The PDQ Vegetarian Cookbook" by Donna Klein. The chickpeas can be omitted if desired. If you want the dish a little milder, halve the curry powder and chili paste amounts. I used regular canola oil in place of the peanut oil and the recipe seemed to turn out fine. I didn't use the pimiento

We loved this. We did not use pimento and used red pepper flakes. It was a tasty, easy, and quick meal. We also used a second tablespoon of seasame oil and not peanut oil.
