Veggie Coconut Curry

I prefer to make this veggie curry on the stove top and not in the pressure cooker to avoid getting that "burn" message. 😕 At first, it will seem like there is not enough liquid, but as the veggies cook, it comes out perfectly!

1 onion, chopped into small pieces
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 t cumin powder
a few dashes of cayenne pepper (or more if you like it spicy)
1 carrot, sliced thinly
about 10-12 broccoli florets
2 small zucchini, chopped (but not too small or they will get mushy)
1 red bell pepper, chopped into chunks
1 15-oz can of baby corn, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can of lite coconut milk
1 15-oz can of organic diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups (or 1 can) cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)*
1-1 1/2 T yellow curry powder
1/2 t coriander powder
1 T coconut sugar (brown sugar if you don't have it)
salt to taste
Cooked Jasmine or Basmati rice

* I think chickpeas cooked from dry have a MUCH better texture. If you can, cook them in your pressure cooked first, let them cool, then add them to this soup. Otherwise, just use a can from the store.

Cook the onions in a large pot with a little water over medium-high heat until translucent and tender. Add crushed garlic and spices. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for another minute or so. Add all of the rest of the ingredients except the salt and coconut sugar and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes--until veggies are fork-tender but not mushy. Remove from heat and add the coconut sugar and salt. You may want to start with 3/4-1 t of salt, and keep adding more a little at a time until your desired saltiness. Serve warm over cooked rice.

  1. Hi, I've just 'happened' onto your website and it has some lovely recipes. The only thing I have a problem with is that you don't put roughly how many people
    would they serve?
    Well done you for losing all that weight!
