  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup diced onion (white or yellow)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) coconut milk (full fat for a creamier texture, light for calorie-wise)
  • 1/4 cup quinoa (double up this portion if you prefer!)
  • 1 tbs minced garlic (approx. 2 cloves)
  • 2 tbs curry powder
  • 2 tbs garam masala
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups of water

  • measuring cups
  • slow Cooker


  1. Pour all the ingredients into the slow cooker and stir to mix.
  2. Set slow cooker on high and let cook for 4 hours. Alternatively, you can set your slow cooker to LOW and let it cook for a longer time, approximately 6-8 hours. It will be ready to serve when the sweet potato is softened and the curry sauce has thickened.
