About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Hot or Cold Spicy Chickpea Curry Soup Meal Prep


Spicy Chickpea Curry Soup
Ingredients for 4 hearty servings

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, slices
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 cans (30oz) chickpeas, drained
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder OR garam masala
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3 cups no salt added vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomato (I used fire roasted)
  • 1 can (13.5oz) lite coconut milk
  • 24oz (680g) steamed cauliflower rice
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh chopped cilantro to taste
    • thin shaved red onion
  1. Set a heavy pot on medium high heat.  Once hot, add olive oil, garlic and onion.  Cook the onions until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes, and add a pinch or 2 of sea salt as they cook.
  2. Add chickpeas, curry powder and cumin.  Cook for 1 – 2 minutes until fragrant and no worries if some begins to stick on the bottom, just make sure it’s not burning.
  3. Pour in the veggie broth, stir, reduce heat to bring to a light simmer, then partially cover and cook for 12 – 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes and coconut milk, then partially cover and cook for another 10 – 12 minutes.
