Coconut Kale Chickpea Soup is an incredibly creamy 1-pot soup with chickpeas, kale, coconut milk, and canned tomatoes. A delicious plant-based meal that comes together so easily!
This soup is one of my go-to recipes in the colder months because it is so easy and uses mostly ingredients that I bet you have on hand right now. You only need a couple of fresh produce ingredients, and the rest are things that you can keep right in your pantry.
It has big flavor from the tomatoes and kale, and is super creamy from the coconut milk. I love using coconut milk to make creamy soups while keeping them dairy-free! The chickpeas give it a really nice texture, and then the onions, garlic, and cumin amp up flavor even more!
I actually think the BEST part of this dish is that it only requires 1 pan. Less dishes, hallelujah! You can make it on the stovetop like I did, or just throw it all into your crockpot and let it cook on low for about 3-4 hours.
I hope you enjoy this soup, it is the perfect thing to curl up on the couch with on a cold winter day.
