Slow Cooker Chickpea Curry - and its vegan!

This recipe calls for a bit more prep work than most of my crock pot recipes but let me tell you, it was totally worth it. I suppose you could use canned chickpeas but it does change the flavor and texture a bit. If you can, cooking the beans from dry gives them a much better flavor and it's a heck of a lot cheaper. This is also a fantastic budget meal as all of the individual items are fairly inexpensive and it makes quite a bit of food.

1 large onion, chopped
4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger (I use the tube ginger which works just as well)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 - 13 oz can high quality coconut milk (don't use the lite one, it's not worth it)
2 teaspoons garam masala
3 tablespoons curry powder (use less or more depending on your own taste)
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
2 potatoes, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
1 bag of frozen peas
2 cups cooked chickpeas**
