New Batch (Updated): Chickpeas in Golden Coconut Broth 💛

What a good day, feeling a lot better. Yay!!

This adaptation was too good not to share. It's largely @sovegan's recipe with a great suggestion from @thetwopeas22 on making an alt coconut milk plus just a couple adjustments of my own (added garlic, only one can of chickpeas, I skipped the turmeric seasoning on the chickpeas for simplicity's sake, and I used jarred hot cherry peppers which were WAY better than crushed red pepper flakes I used before).

--- Ingredients
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 yellow or white onion, petite diced
1/4 cup jarred hot cherry peppers
1 thumb fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp turmeric, ground
2 cups vegetable stock
1 recipe alt coconut milk (below)
Fresh basil
1 lime, divided (juice 1/2 and cut the other half into 4 wedges)
Cooked Jasmine rice to serve

Drop a handful of the chickpeas into an air fryer at 400F for about 6-8 minutes until crispy.

Add onion and ginger to a nonstick skillet and saute until soft about 8-10 minutes. Add 2-3 tbsp diced cherry peppers and minced garlic and cook for another minute or two. Add turmeric, remaining chickpeas, vegetable stock, and alt coconut milk. Stir and bring to a simmer for about 10 minutes. Add basil leaves to your preference and the juice of 1/2 lime. Taste then salt to taste, keeping it a hint light on salt since you'll serve with a lime wedge. I used about 3/4 tsp salt in the batch.

TO SERVE: add a scoop of hot Jasmine rice to a bowl plate or bowl, top with a couple ladles of chickpeas in coconut broth, then a sprinkle of more fresh basil, more cherry peppers, and a little scoop of the air fried chickpeas. Serve with a wedge of lime.

📌 Recipe for Alt Coconut Milk (based on suggestion by @thetwopeas22):
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked
1/4-1/2 tsp coconut extract

Blend until creamy!

ℹī¸ I think the only thing I'll change next time, maybe, is dropping the alt coconut milk to 1/3 cup cashews. It was really rich and luxurious and I'm genuinely curious how 1/3 cup, or even 1/4 cup would do for the entire batch.
