Thai Coconut Curry Soup with Chickpeas and Potatoes

I adapted this Thai Coconut Curry Soup with Chickpeas and Potatoes from a recipe I found in Street Vegan, the great cookbook from the Cinnamon Snail food truck! The book oozes with imaginative and fun recipes like Chickpea “Crab” Cakes and Tequila Lime Tostones! You can always find inspiration by just leafing through the pages.

Yesterday, I had a taste for Thai soup. But this soup needed to be a one-pot meal, substantial enough to feed the kids at lunch. So after looking through what I had left in the fridge and the pantry (hello potatoes!), I browsed through Street Vegan and found exactly what I needed. This Thai Coconut Curry Soup with Chickpeas and Potatoes. The potatoes and the chickpeas bring the heartiness, while the deep Thai spices make this dish a keeper. The kids loved it with some quinoa on the side. The next day, they wanted some again, but with rice.

The recipe is simple and straightforward. I only switched out the agave nectar for maple syrup (I more often than not use maple syrup as a sweetener) and since I didn’t have Thai basil on hand, I used Spicy Globe basil. It was just great! The broth is addictive, you’ll want to dip everything in it, from toast to fingers! Feel free to change up the vegetables, you can’t ruin anything that goes into this broth.

If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it. Please tag @LivityGardens on Instagram and use the hashtag #LivityGardens.
