This dish is filled with ingredients I always have in my home. So this is a stew I whip together often. As soon as I added all those curry spices to my onions and added coconut milk, tomato’s and veggies with a sprinkle of love, I knew we were going to have a great dinner. My whole family loves this stew. Including Ella my 4 year old. And by adding quinoa it adds in even more nutrients and ups the protein element. I highly recommend trying this delicious and nourishing soup to warm you up from the inside out. it is also great to freeze and enjoy through out the week / month.
1 medium sweet onion, diced
2 tsp Bragg Soya Sauce
1/2 large cauliflower, diced small
1 large sweet potatoes, diced small
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 inch ginger, pressed/minced (or 1 tsp powder ginger)
1 tsp curry
1 tsp Coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp turmeric
1-2 tsp salt
pinch chili flakes
1 can diced tomatoes (14oz with juices) – I like this brand
1 can full fat coconut milk (sometimes I add another half a cup for extra creamyness) – I like this brand
1/3 cup quinoa
3-4 cups water (just covering veg)
1 can or cup cooked chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1/2 lemon juice, for serving [optional]
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds), [optional]
Begin by dicing your onion and putting it into a large pot with coconut oil. Let cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes or until translucent.
Add a light soya sauce to caramelize for another 5-10 minutes.
Add your spices to your onions- minced ginger and garlic, turmeric, curry, coriander, cumin, chili flakes, salt and pepper
Add sweet potatoes and cauliflower to this pot and mix into onions/spices
Add quinoa, diced tomatoes and coconut milk. Stir.
Add water so it is just covering the vegetables
Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Taste and adjust spices or salt to your perfect taste.
When you serve, add soup by the ladle full to a bowl. Drizzle some lemon(I love lemon on it, but taste for yourself), a few peptias (if using) and serve with love and joy!
