I will curry any veggie! (Sweet Potato, Cabbage and Chickpea Curry)

Hi friends.  Life has been cray and I haven't gotten to a friday favorites or recap post.  So food it is for now!  Still riding high on the National Championship and lots of time with Kevin. I am hosting my other book club this weekend, so you know this post is overdue!

I recently hosted book club and we read Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows.  I was making an Indian menu and had to base it on what was in my Covey Rise Haul.  I decided to make curry with whatever they threw at me and what they threw at me was sweet potatoes, cabbage and cherry tomatoes.  I thought this would be odd in curry, but found inspiration from two recipes that included all of these items that I combined for deliciousness.  Holy cow it was!

I could not believe this was vegan, it had so much flavor!  It made my house smell good and my belly full.  The cabbage pulled in all the curry flavor and I had no idea the tomatoes were in there.  This is perfect for a cold night!  Full recipe to follow the montage.

2 cups vegetable broth
1 can of chickpeas
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Heat the coconut oil in a large pot.  Add the onion and carrot and sauté until onion is translucent.  Add in ginger and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.  Add the seasonings and mix well, cook for 2 more minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients through chickpeas and cook for 30 minutes.  Before serving, add cilantro and lime juice.  Serve over basmati rice or alone as soup!
