  • 1 white onion, diced (approx. 2 cups, 350 g)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tbsp red curry paste
  • 4 carrots, peeled and chopped (approx. 2 cups, 300 g)
  • 4 cups peeled and cubed potato (660 g)
  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower (250 g)
  • 1/2 a medium zucchini, diced (approx. 1 cup, 125 g)
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1.5 cups green peas (200 g)
  • 1 x 19 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (approx. 2 cups)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Saute the onion and garlic in 2 tbsp of water or broth in a large soup pot over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
