Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and grated ginger, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

Step 2: Stir in the red curry paste and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the spices are fragrant and the paste is well combined with the aromatics.

Step 3: Pour in the vegetable broth and coconut milk, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let the soup simmer gently for 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Step 4: Add the mixed vegetables and cooked chickpeas to the soup, and simmer for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the chickpeas are heated through.

Step 5: Stir in the soy sauce, lime juice, and brown sugar, and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more lime juice or brown sugar if desired. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve hot, with cooked rice or noodles on the side if desired.
