Adopting a plant based lifestyle does not mean you sacrifice on flavor and big hearty meals. In fact, some of the alternatives to meat and dairy are so incredibly delicious, you’ll be shocked you waited so long to give it a try. This recipe brings a mild coconut milk to the forefront in this creamy curry stew. It’s not only nutritious, but delicious with additions like the super-grain quinoa, protein boosters like chickpeas, and vegetables full of antioxidants. Nearly everything in this recipe serves purpose as fuel in your body. It’s also ridiculously easy with no real cooking required, just let that slow cooker do all the work for you. Dump it all in, stir, and let dinner make itself.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped sweet potato (approx. one large, peeled)
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup diced onion (white or yellow)
  • 1 - 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 - 28oz can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 2 - 15oz cans coconut milk (full fat for a creamier texture, light for calorie wise)
  • 1/4 cup quinoa (double up this portion if you prefer!)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (approx. 2 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups of water

Equipment

  • Spatula/Spoon
  • Measuring Cups
  • Slow Cooker/Crock Pot

Method

  • Pour all the ingredients into the slow cooker, and stir to mix.
  • Set slow cooker on high, and let cook for 4 hours. Alternatively, you can set your slow cooker to LOW and let it cook for a longer time, approximately 6-8 hours. It will be ready to serve when the sweet potato is softened, and the curry sauce has thickened.
  • Ladle into individual bowls, and serve hot.
