1 can full fat coconut milk

4 cups vegetable broth

1 onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 stalks of celery, diced

1 chunk of ginger, minced (I had about 1 tbsp)

3 large carrots, chopped

4 large potatoes, peeled and diced

1 1/2 cups peas - fresh or frozen

4 cups cooked chickpeas, about 2 standard-sized cans

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 tsp curry powder

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp garam masala

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/4 cup fresh basil, to serve


Toss the onions, celery and garlic into a large pot on medium heat. Add about 1tbsp of broth, if needed, to reduce sticking. Stir for about 5 minutes or until the have begun to brown.

Pour in the coconut milk and the remaining broth into the pot, and bring to a boil. Once boiled, you'll want to add the spices and maple syrup into the broth mixture. Stir well and taste. Adjust flavour to your liking.

Add in the ginger, carrots, potatoes and peas, and let simmer until potatoes are cooked. Toss in the chickpeas.

Remove from heat and serve immediately. Top each bowl with a generous sprinkle of basil and fresh pepper.

*To make this dish it's own meal, serve over rice, and alongside some vegan naan bread.
