  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil ((olive oil may be substituted))
  • 1 vidalia onion (or yellow, Diced small)
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger (1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 15 ounces chickpeas ( drained and rinsed (I used no-salt added))
  • 14 ounces coconut milk (I used lite; full-fat will deliver a richer/thicker result)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 4 tablespoons Thai red curry paste (or to taste, curry powder may be substituted, to taste; I used almost 4)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (or to taste)
  • 4 cups kale (fresh, torn into pieces with center ribs removed)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (optional and to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (finely chopped for garnishing (basil may be substituted))
  • 2 green onions (sliced into thin rounds for garnishing, optional)

    Turned out really good! Is now one of my fav vegan recipes. Substituted green curry for red curry and spinach for kale as that is what i had and added broccoli. It was yummy😊👍👍

    This was so tasty! A perfect option for a curry if you want the flavor complexity of curry but not the heaviness that comes with a lot of Indian curries. I added 1 T brown sugar instead of 2 T and put in a bit more kale. Paired this with homare-genki rice it was a perfect, healthy, plant based meal.

    So many flavours. My family really enjoyed. I will be making this dish again :D
    One of my favourite recipes! I made it without sugar, cilantro and green scallions. Really tasty!

    Didn't have chickpeas, so I substituted white beans and worked out well. Delicious. Will definitely make again.

    I agree with other reviews in that it didn't really need the added salt or sugar. Very, very, tasty recipe!
