  1. To make the soy curls:
  2. Put the soy curls in a bowl and fill with hot water. Allow the soy curls to rehydrate for 10 minutes. Drain them and pat them dry.
  3. Toss the soy curls with the arrowroot powder, garlic powder, dried thyme, kosher salt, black pepper, and ground allspice.
  4. In a deep skillet or saucepan, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the soy curls to the pan in a single layer. You may have to cook them in batches depending on the size of your pan. Allow the soy curls to cook until they are browned, about 6 minutes, before flipping. Flip the soy curls and cook until browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer the soy curls to a bowl and set aside.
  5. Try not to eat too many. Good luck with that!
  6. To make the dish:
  7. In the same skillet or saucepan, heat 2 Tbs. coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  8. Saute the onion, garlic and chile pepper until the onions are softened, about 4 minutes.
  9. Add the potatoes and mix in the curry powder, dried thyme, ground allspice, red pepper flakes and kosher salt. Toss to coat the veggies with the spices and let the potatoes cook for 5 minutes.
  10. Mix in the chickpeas and cook for another 5 minutes.
  11. Add 2 cups of water; there should be enough to just cover the vegetables.
  12. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender and the mixture has thickened.
  13. Add the chopped Broccoleaf and the soy curls to the pot. Toss everything together and cook until the Broccoleaf is wilted and the soy curls are heated through. Serve while hot.
