Mmm who doesn’t love a warm and delicious curry dish? Not only is this coconut quinoa curry packed with flavour, but it is also super easy to make (thanks to Alyssa @ Simply Quinoa for the recipe)! The best part of this recipe? That it’s made in a slow cooker of course! If you have a busy day ahead of you or simply don’t feel like constantly tending to your cooking, you need to try this slow cooker recipe! Slow cookers are so easy to use, all you have to do is throw all the ingredients in, and let your meal cook for around 4-6 hours and it’s ready to serve!

This curry dish is filled with hearty ingredients, making for a thick and filling curry. The chickpeas are a great source of protein, and the sweet potatoes and broccoli add some nutrients and light carbs to the dish. The sweet potato and broccoli are easily interchangeable — the sweet potato can be swapped for butternut squash and if you’re not into potatoes and broccoli, replace them with ANY other vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. You can also feel free to add any additional veggies along with the broccoli.

Both the coconut milk and quinoa will act as the main ingredients that help to thicken the curry. The freshly ground herbs and spices will add the punch of flavour that every curry needs! This recipe doesn’t include any meat or dairy products, making it safe to enjoy for all the vegan and vegetarian Squadies!
