Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil ( you can sub for any other kind of oil)
  • 1 medium onion , chopped
  • 4 medium carrots , chopped
  • 900g | 4 cups potato cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 3 cups vegetable stock , or water
  • 410g | 2 cups cooked chickpeas , (1 19oz/540ml can)
  • 398mls | 1 can canned coconut milk , full fat will give a richer, thicker texture but light can also be used if you don't mind your soup slightly thinner
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons salt , add to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar , optional but lifts the flavour slightly

Instructions

  • Heat the coconut oil in large soup pan
  • Saute the onion until just starting to turn golden brown.
  • Add the carrots, potato, garlic & curry powder and cook for a few more minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so.
  • Add the stock/water and simmer until the potatoes and carrots are tender (about 10 minutes). At this point if you prefer a thicker, smoother soup, you can remove half, blend it up in a blender, then return it to the pan before continuing with the next step. 
  • Add chickpeas, coconut milk and sugar.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer over a medium/low heat until hot.
