  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp curry powder or more if you like a stronger curry flavour
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne or more if you like heat
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower

  • 1 can coconut milk

  • In a large frypan or soup pot, sauté onion in coconut oil about 2 minutes or until starting to soften.
  • Add fresh ginger and sauté another minute or 2
  • Add curry powder, cardamom and cayenne and stir in another minute
  • Add 1 cup of water and let onions, ginger and spices simmer for about 3-5 minutes, stirring to make sure nothing sticks, keep temperature low.
  • Add potatoes, cauliflower, kale and chickpeas into fry pan or soup pot and cover with just enough water to submerge the veggies.
  • Add salt.
  • Bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer and cover.
  • Cook until potatoes and cauliflower are just about tender and then add canned coconut milk.
  • Add lime juice and coconut aminos.
  • Let simmer another couple of minutes but do not bring up heat.
  • Serve over rice or quinoa or eat straight up as a soup.

Add more lime for tang, aminos for salty sweet or your fave hot sauce to lift the heat just a little more if needed.
