Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

Since this makes such a large batch, you can freeze what you don't think you'll eat in a week. Just freeze it before adding the coconut milk since this has a tendency to separate once frozen.

Ingredients

  • 1

    teaspoon olive oil

  • 1

    large onion, diced

  • 2

    all-purpose potatoes, diced

  • 1

    tablespoon salt

  • 1

    tablespoon curry powder

  • 1

    tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated (about 1 tablespoon)

  • 3

    garlic cloves, minced

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2

    cups vegetable broth

  • 2

    (16-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 1

    green bell pepper, diced

  • 1

    red bell pepper, diced

  • 1

    medium head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets

  • 1

    (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes with their juices

  • ¼

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 10-ounces baby spinach

  • 1

    cup coconut milk

Directions

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion with one teaspoon of salt until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and another teaspoon of salt, and sauté until just translucent around the edges. Stir in the curry, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and chili and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour in 1/4 cup of broth and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Pour this onion-potato mixture into the bowl of your slow cooker. To the slow-cooker, add the rest of the broth, chickpeas, bell pepper, cauliflower, tomatoes with their juices, the pepper, and the final teaspoon of salt. Stir to combine. The liquid should come half-way up the sides of the bowl; add more broth as necessary. Cover and cook for 4 hours on HIGH. Stir in the spinach and coconut milk. Cover with lid for 1 minute to allow the spinach to wilt. Taste and adjust salt and other seasonings as needed. Serve on its own or over cous cous, Israeli cous cous, or orzo pasta.
