serving 4 servings
cook time 30 minutes
total time 30 minutes

the ingredients

  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 2 cups cauliflower chopped into small florets
  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 large sweet potato cubed
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 carton of veggie broth
  • 1 12 oz bag of fresh spinach or half bag of frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 bell peppers diced
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp tapioca starch or arrowroot optional if you want it thicker


  • Get out a soup pot or large pan and turn on high heat. Add the cauliflower, sweet potato, peppers, chickpeas, and spices. Add veggie broth to pot/pan just until it covers all of your ingredients.
  • While stirring every couple of minutes, keep the curry at medium to high heat, you want to make sure its boiling so that the potatoes cook.
  • At the 20-minute mark, stir in the coconut milk and peas. Cook for another 10 minutes then add in the spinach. Stir it in until it's wilted.
  • If you desire a thicker curry, mix together 2 tsp tapioca with 1 tbsp water, then pour into the curry and stir for a few minutes. You will see it immediately thicken.
  • Serve and enjoy!

In good health,

    Do you think this would still be great with oat milk in place of the coconut milk?

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      I’d use almond milk, hemp milk or flax milk

      1. Mike O says:

        Trying to limit fat so used almond milk with some coconut extract. Worked out nicely. Really enjoy your recipes.

    So so delicious! I just made this for the first time and already know it’s going to become one of my go-to recipes. I’m not vegan, but am trying to eat more plant-based and cut back on meat and dairy for health reasons – this recipe knocks it out of the park. So satisfying, and so much flavor! The only change I made was leaving out the coriander.5 stars
