Easy Cauliflower Chickpea Curry [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan





Cook Time



  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 large red pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, very well drained
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (not light!)
  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons tapioca starch
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium, gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (not sodium-reduced)
  • 2 cups cauliflower, cut into large florets
  • Squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • Green onion, for garnish
  • Cooked white rice, or cauliflower rice, for serving


  1. Heat the coconut oil on sautée in your pressure cooker. Once hot, add in the pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the drained tomatoes, coconut milk, and curry paste, stirring until the paste is dissolved.  Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the tapioca starch with 4 teaspoons of the hot liquid from the pressure cooker until smooth.
  4. While constantly stirring, whisk it back into the pressure cooker along with the soy sauce and coconut sugar. Boil until the mixture begins to thicken, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir in the can of chickpeas and cauliflower. Cover (making sure it’s set to sealing!) and manually set it to high pressure and cook for 5 minutes. Let it pressure release naturally.
  6. Once the pressure has released, squeeze in fresh lime juice and salt to taste.
  7. Garnish with cilantro and green onion.


You need to squeeze out as MUCH moisture as you can from the tomatoes. So, make sure you open the can and keep pressing on the tomatoes, squeezing them out to get as much liquid out as possibly. If you don't, the curry isn't as thick and creamy!

It can be easy to make and totally delicious. Taylor believes in living a balanced, whole life so Food Faith Fitness also focuses on fitness/nutrition tips and working on keeping Christ at the center of daily life. However, Taylor also believes that moderation is key, so sometimes it’s ok to just go and eat a cookie! When she isn’t blogging or messing up her kitchen, Taylor leads a pretty simple life. Places that you could find her include: the gym, her Bible study or just snuggling up on the couch with husband and doggy, watching The Food Network (Chopped in particular!) Taylor also has not-so-secret obsessions with all things peanut butter, cookie dough (even better if they are together!) pink and leopard print.
