Heat a large soup pot over medium heat. Once hot, add coconut oil and onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Next, add ginger, garlic and curry paste and sauté for 2-3 more minutes, until fragrant.
Add sweet potato, mini potatoes, broth, salt and coconut milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender.
Add broccoli, bell peppers and baby bok choy and continue to simmer for 5 more minutes, until all vegetables are tender.
Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary; add more curry paste for spice, or more salt for overall flavour.
Serve as is or with a garnish of cilantro and whole wheat naan bread. Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to one month.
Substitutions: Easily substitute all vegetables in this recipe for whatever you have on hand! Zucchini, bean sprouts, carrots and cauliflower all work very well.

Easily omit any of the veggies listed without any consequence to the recipe!
