Chickpea & Yam Soup

on February 7, 2013

Sometimes the best dinners come together in fifteen minutes!

Yay!  🙂

What we used…

  • 1 can of organic chick peas
  • 2 yams or sweet potatoes (the orange ones)
  • 1 shallot or onion
  • 1c of spinach
  • 1.5c of  ‘so delicious’ (and it is that!) coconut milk
  • 1c of water
  • 1 ‘edward’s & sons’ curry cube
  • 1tbsp of freshly grated ginger and garlic
  • a pinch of turmeric and a dash pepper (no need to add salt if you use the curry cube)
  • a big handful of chopped cilantro

So…

Rinse and drain your chickpeas and throw them into a medium sized pot with everything else, except the cilantro.

Bring to a low boil and then turn down to medium heat and cook for ten minutes… just until the yams are cooked through.  The smaller you dice them the faster they’ll cook.  🙂

I used a fork and gave everything a quick mash… really just for the four year old.  🙂

Add in your cilantro and serve… maybe with a little sauteed organic cabbage on the side?

So good… SO delicious!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
