… I require that you Make This Soup Immediately! It is yummy, easy (store cupboard ingredients), heart-warming and best of all, quick:
Creamy Chickpea Soup
2 tbsp olive oil
5cm piece of ginger, grated
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped (I used chilli flakes – just as good)
2 tbsp curry paste
1 tsp turmeric
1 can lentils, drained
1 can sweetcorn, drained
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup coriander, chopped, to serve
Heat the oil in a large pan. Slowly cook the ginger, garlic, onion and chilli. Add the curry paste and turmeric, and fry for one minute. Add all the ingredients and bring to the boil. Blend half and leave the rest chunky. Season and serve hot, with coriander sprinkled on top, if you are so lucky to live in a country where coriander is easily accessible. If, like me, you aren’t, don’t worry; it’s perfectly delicious without.
With this soup, you will make friends and influence people, increase your emotional intelligence, and become very full and satisfied.
I wish you well on your soup journey.
