Organic Chickpea and Carrot Curry Soup - Vegan and Gluten-Free

Organic Chickpea and Carrot Curry Soup
Quite often I decide what to cook based on what I have in the fridge-- what veggies are malingering, waiting their turn, feeling left-out?

 What precious sauce did I make a couple of days ago that is only half-eaten? Did my husband mention something about wondering what I had planned for those carrots?

 That is how tonight's organic chickpea and carrot curry soup came about-- the bag of carrots that were starting to go a little brown on the tips... oh, and all those delish chickpeas that I cooked up the other day that I partly used for that yummy Avocado-Chickpea Hummus...

  INGREDIENTS

  • 2 T. Coconut Oil
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. organic Curry powder (I used Mild, you pick your own bite)
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin seed, ground in the coffee grinder
  • 1 thumb-to-the-joint piece of Ginger, grated
  • 6 Carrots, chopped
  • 2 C. pre-cooked Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans (or 1 15-oz. can, rinsed)
  • 5 C. Water or Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 C. unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • Celtic Sea Salt to taste


METHOD

  1. Melt and heat the Coconut Oil over medium heat until fragrant.  
  2. Add in the Onions and then the Garlic, and stir occasionally until limp and glistening
  3. Stir in the Spices
  4. Add the Carrots and the Chickpeas with the 5 cups of Water or Broth (or a combination).  Cook until the Carrots and Beans are totally creamy-tender.
  5. Remove about a cup and a half of the soup, and set aside.  This is optional and I do it because I like the texture of some beans and carrots in the soup-- reminds me of my lovely experiences with real Indian Chickpea Curry.
  6. Blend up the soup with Coconut Milk -- use either a stick/immersion blender or a traditional blender carafe (cool a little first).  
  7. Let people use Celtic Sea Salt to add to their own liking when you serve the soup in individual servings.

    3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

     These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

    The Power of Flowers

    Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
