Easy Vegan Chickpea Coconut Curry

Can you believe it is NOVEMBER?! Now that Halloween is over, stores have become a winter wonderland overnight (although Costco and Dollarama have been stocked with tree ornaments and twinkly lights for months). I love the winter holiday season; it’s my second favourite holiday of the year and clearly my Dad feels the same way based on how he like to decorate our lawn:

Lawn Santa

All the holiday cheer seems a wee bit premature. I would hate to wear out the festive season, so until December 1st, I pledge to avoid Starbuck’s holiday menuBing Crosby’s crooning, and zoning out to the burning log. I’ll do my best, but no guarantees.

dashing-through-the-no-grumpy-cat-meme A girl needs to keep warm in this chill somehow! When I’m feeling chilly I usually turn to one of three things: a cup of tea, my electric blanket, or the slow cooker. For optimal chill-imination I frequently consult all three simultaneously.

Coconut Chickpea Curry Vegan

Doesn’t this just look like a bowl-full of cozy? I promise you that is exactly what it is; warm, creamy, comforting curry with plant-powered chickpea protein. You can even make it in a slow cooker, so it really couldn’t be simpler. So long as you can wield a knife (safely please), measure with relative accuracy, and flip a switch you’re golden!

Easy Vegan Chickpea Coconut Curry

Cook time: 1-6 hours (depending on cooking method)


  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 c. sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 c. celery, chopped
  • 2 c. carrot, chopped
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 15 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 c. almond milk
  • 3 c. cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated

Vegan Chickpea Coconut Curry I’ll admit that I will likely be cheating on my festive avoidance measures on November 17th when Santa Claus comes to town in Toronto and November 23rd in Kingston! I have a thing for parades. Really, I just have a thing for free candy, people dressed up in funny costumes, and an excuse to relive my childhood ;)

    My favourite way to keep warm is tea- you should see my tea cupboard! It’s a mess and packed to the brim with I swear, 50+ kinds of tea. Tea party anyone? Haha

    On another note- let me know when you are back in Toronto for Christmas- I won’t be heading to Kingston till fairly close to Christmas so we will hopefully be able to get together!
