The recipe calls for unsweetened coconut milk, but I suggest you also choose a low fat version, too. The brand I used was a bit less than half the fat as full fat, which would bring this recipe down another 3 to 4 grams of fat. You can also leave it out or use coconut extract for the taste. The rest of the fat in this recipe (2 gm) comes from the chickpeas.
To lower the salt content use salt-free canned tomatoes and rinse the beans, if canned.
