Creamy Coconut, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew

This one-pot dish is such a simple mid-week meal. It’s packed with immunity-boosting ingredients like ginger, garlic and turmeric and it’s full of veggies - the perfect winter warmer.

Meal Prep

Breakdown

  • Cook the onions and spices. 
  • Add the vegetables, coconut cream and stock.
  • Let simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the kale and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve up and enjoy! 

Tips

  • You want to make sure that it’s on a gentle simmer when cooking so the veggies don’t overcook and turn to mush.

  • Roasted cashews bring such a delicious flavour but we always roast our own or buy ‘dry roasted’ cashews as a lot of store bought options are roasted in vegetable oils. 

This recipe serves four if you’re cooking for two you can halve the recipe but we’d recommend making the full batch and freezing the leftovers or taking for lunch the next day to avoid food waste.
