One Pot Chickpea and Cauliflower Curry

  • Author: Mila Furman
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Huge flavor does not always need hours and hours of time to develop. This delicious chickpea and cauliflower curry is made in one pan and has a huge pop of flavor all in under 20 minutes!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 inch knob of ginger
  • 1 small head of cauliflower (chopped into bite size florets)
  • 1 can of chickpeas (drained *)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 large handful of cilantro (roughly copped)
  • 1 lime cut up in wedges
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place onions, ginger, garlic and 1/2 a cup of water into a blender or a food processor. (You may not need the water in a food processor but you will definitely need it for a blender).*
  2. Puree everything until it is finely chopped.
  3. Heat up olive oil on medium heat in a large pan.
  4. Add the pureed onion mixture to the pan allow to sweat for 2-3 minutes. Do not let it get caramelized.
  5. Add the tomatoes , curry powder, garam masala, paprika, turmeric and chili flakes to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Combine everything and let it cook for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add cauliflower and vegetable broth. Let it cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture reduces and the cauliflower is fork tender.
  7. Add in the chickpeas and cilantro.
  8. Taste, season and serve over rice and with lime wedges.


1. You can reserve the brine from the chickpeas to make aquaphaba. AKA vegan meringue. Recipe on the way…soon 🙂
2. You can certainly chop everything up by hand, however I like the homogenous mix that the blender and or food processor gives us plus…IT’S A TOTAL TIME SAVER.
3. If you are out of tomatoes, you can use 3 tbsp of tomato paste instead.
