I am saving my cream quota for the next post so this luscious soup recipe has no cream or butter whatsoever. Hooray for another dairy free and vegan friendly recipe!
Lately, I have really been interested in cooking vegan friendly food. I love my self-imposed cooking challenge especially coming from a person who does not have any strict dietary requirements. When I tried to cook with only plant based ingredients, it allows me to explore new combination of ingredients.
Let’s talk about this sweet potato and chickpea soup, for example. I love the marriage of the natural sweetness of the sweet potato and the nuttiness from the chickpea. Soup made in heaven, I’d say. * wink*
Legumes generally add heartiness to a meal.. Instead of a carbohydrate centric soup, it’s exciting to incorporate a little protein to make a satisfying meal.
As the sweet potato and chickpea are fairly versatile to work with in terms of flavour, I have added curry powder as my flavour base but Thai curry paste, Moroccan spices or dried Italian herbs will work just as well.
