Ingredients

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon salt

before serving

  • 1 can coconut milk, full fat works best for this recipe
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach

Instructions

  • Saute the onions, garlic, and ginger in oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add 1/2 of the salt, cayenne and curry. Cook, while stirring, for 2-3 more minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth to get all of the bits of seasoning off of the pan then add this to the slow cooker.
  • Add remaining broth and remaining salt to the slow cooker, along with drained chickpeas and tomatoes with their juices. Add in all of the prepared vegetables.
  • Cook on low for 6 hours then add in the coconut milk and spinach. Cook for another 10-20 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Then serve over rice, quinoa or by itself!

Notes

Almost any vegetable may be used here. I use 1/2 head cauliflower, 1 stem of broccoli, 1/2 butternut squash, 1 cup green beans, and 1 bell pepper) Potatoes also work well as do root vegetables, carrots, eggplant, zucchini and probably just about whatever you have on hand. Frozen or pre-chopped will cut back on the prep time.
