  • Slow Cooker


  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp ginger grated
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 brown onion diced
  • 2 cans chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 300 g mushrooms sliced


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (356°F)  
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot. 
  • Add the garlic, ginger, onion and mushrooms into the pot and cook on a medium heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add chickpeas and season well with salt and pepper. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  • Transfer the chickpea mixture into the slow cooker and pour in the water, vegetable stock, coconut milk and carrots and stir well. Cook on low for 4 hours and stir well, crushing the chickpeas, the leave for a further 4 hours. Alternatively, cook on high for 4 hours, stirring and crushing the chickpeas half way through. You can use a potato masher to squash as many chickpeas as you like. Or you can use an immersion blender to make it a smooth soup. Or you can remove half the batch and bland it and then return it to the pot and get the best of both worlds!
