veggie chickpea/garbanzo soups...any favourite recipes?
Trying to replicate a favourite veggie harira, but would love to hear about any veggie chickpea soups you like to make!
I also like one from Mollie Katzen's Vegetable Heaven. Thick, creamy, ideal for the cold cold cold nights like these. She says it's almost like heated-up hommus, and I agree.
Soak and cook 2 cups chickpeas. Sautee 2 cups onion, a few Tbsp garlic, a few carrots, pinch saffron, 2 tsp toasted cumin seeds, 2 tsp dry mustard. Add the cooked chickpeas, 4 cups water and bring to boil and cook 20 mins. Add 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, cayenne and black pepper to taste, and a few Tbsp tahini. Puree and add more water if it is too thick. Serve with some diced fresh tomato on top, a little fresh cilantro or mint, and a drizzle or two of sesame oil.
