Greetings steemit food lovers. I know it has been a while…. So for all of you wondering… YES, I am still alive and kicking. As always life has been very busy, hence my online absence.

Nonetheless, I have been cooking yummy pant-based meals and desserts that are lined up to share. But I think many of you can relate to my busy lifestyle finding it hard to find time for steemit. I still love you all and what a better day than #fruitsandveggiesmonday to reemerge after almost a month of steemit silence.

#fruitsandveggiesmonday is one of my favorite weekly contests made possible by gorgeous and inspirational people @vegansofsteemit, @lenasveganliving and @plantstoplanks.

Never heard of them or this little contest go check out their profile and be amazed by the plant-based and healthy lifestyle tips, tricks, and recipes you will find there.

But let’s talk food now, shall we?

Spicy Coconut Chickpea Curry


Coconut curries make a great weeknight dinner and they are packed with so much plant goodness. Furthermore, they are the perfect dish to clear out the fridge and make bigger amounts to eat the day after or freeze for later.

So to be shy to add whatever you have left.

Piece of fresh ginger, grated

Directions


Heat cooking oil over medium heat. Saute onion until fragrant, add garlic and ginger and cook for a few minutes more. Then stir in the spice mix, stir well and add a little bit of the coconut milk to avoid the herbs from getting burned.

Then add bell pepper, eggplant, broccoli, and zucchini. Cook for a few minutes before adding the sweet potatoes, coconut milk, and water. Stir well and cook, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Add more water if needed.

Uncover, add baby corn if using and cook for 10-15 minutes more or until the veggies are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated and the sauce has thickened. The last few minutes add spinach or kale and chickpeas and cook until heated through.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Happy to see you pop up! Especially to bring us something yummy on a Monday. I think we can all relate to life getting busy, but it's nice to hear all is well. A curry is always a good way to get my tummy grumbling. This one looks delicious. Can't wait to see what else you've been cooking!

Thanks. A day really needs more hours or I should sleep less hehe. Have a lovely day

Oh my gosh, I know it! If I just had a few more hours it would be great. I don't do well when I give up on sleep, haha!

Same here... Need my 7 to 8 hours of sleep.

Why is it that I love coming to your profile to admire your cooking talent? I really admire you, it looks so delicious!

This sounds yummy! I will have to get some coconut milk and give this one a go for dinner this week. ;-)

I hope you like it as much as we did. Enjoy my friend 😺

I know I will!!! ♥

Looks delicious! Homemade chickpeas/coconut curry is my favorite. I see that you are using mustard seed which is a great idea and I have to try it too.

I personally add my zucchini just a couple of minutes before I take it off heat as I like them nice and crunchy but I know that many people do it your way :)

Great recipe! Thank you for sharing and don't worry about absence. In my opinion, the real life should always take priority :)

True that. I like them crunchy too but my hubby lives them like this. Have a lovely day
