1 cup rice (we used brown) • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil • 1 medium sized onion, diced • 3 cloves of garlic, minced • 2 teaspoons curry powder • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika • Salt and pepper freshly ground black pepper • 1 cup vegetables stock (or water) • 1 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas, drained • 1 (15 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk • 3 cups roughly chopped bok choy 2 • 1 bunch of tatsoi, washed and chopped • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice • ½ bunch of cilantro, chopped



1. Put 1 cup of rice into a pot and add a little less than 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil then reduce setting to low and cover for about 40 minutes. Once cooked, set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, curry powder, sweet paprika, and a healthy pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute longer, stirring often to coat the onion and garlic in the spices.

3. Add in the vegetable stock, chickpeas and coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the lime juice, chopped bok choy, and 3 tatsoi and keep on low heat until the greens wilt down. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.

4. Mix in cilantro

5. Serve the soup with a scoop of rice and enjoy.

6. Enjoy
