Hi Meg,

This soup is DELICIOUS!  I've actually made it with water instead of broth, and it tasted just fine too.  I hope you and your daughter enjoy it as much as I do.

Little Mary

This soup is sooooo good.  I've made it several times in the last couple of weeks and have been eating it for days.  I love recipes with curry in it and I love garbanzo beans, so it makes a great combination.  I do add a tiny bit of stevia or splenda, to give it just a touch of sweetness.  I guess I like curry flavor to have just a touch of sweetness, because I have made a very good dip over the years (from Taste of Home) called Slam Dunk Dip (not making it now as it is not LDL friendly), but it has curry and is slightly sweet.  Also, the last time I made this soup in threw in some spinach I had just before using my immersion blender and that was really good too.  Thanks, Mary, for the recipe.  Jerrie

I wanted to try this today. I have never had curry powder so I have no idea what to expect.  I have very old curry powder in my spice cabinet - probably at least 10 years old or older - would that still be good or should I buy fresh?

I make this soup all the time. I just love it.  Good idea to throw in spinach, Jerrie!  I'm all about getting those good nutrients from spinach into things!

Jencita, seeing it only costs a couple of dollars to get some new curry powder, I'd recommend tossing out the old stuff if it's been in the cabinet for 10 years or more.  I'm sitting here wondering how on earth curiosity couldn't have gotten the better of you for all these years that you've had curry powder but never tried it!  Too funny.  Be adventurous!  Go buy some curry powder and give your taste buds a new sensation. 

Little Mary  :thumbsup:

Thanks Mary,
I actually have a lot of spices in my cabinet that are very old.  I plan on becoming more adventurous. I bought new curry powder and am trying this soup tomorrow! Can't wait.

I just tried this soup and I really liked it. I am the only one that liked it though - I won't even tell you what my daughter said it looked like.  I ate 2 bowls! Yum! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the reminder Crick!  When we first started eating this and the curried chickpeas my three oldest kiddos were involved in debate and their resolution that year involved US Policy with India.  Funny, I think they were all about the curried chickpea dishes because of the link with India.  I think I made the two dishes so much we got a bit tired of them, especially when the year changed and there was a new resolution.  There is a cold front in TX.....I think I'll go soak my chickpeas and have this tonight. :thumbsup:  It is a very good soup!

Blessings,
Julie

Glad you liked it, ebeth! Brrrrr....it's soup weather in most of the country right now. This is a really easy, hearty soup to keep you warm if you're expecting those blizzard conditions. Maybe a bit of extra hot sauce to get you heated up is in order!

I am going to make this. I have some tomatoes, pepper and onions to make the salsa. Best is that I pick up my Vita-mix blender on Wed. My granddaughter found it on craigs list and I am making smoothies and soups galore. Life is full of surprises.

Hey, Mary, love this soup and still appreciate all the effort you have put into coming up with such yummy, healthy recipes for all of us to freely use. I'm making this again as I type! I found a recipe online called Morrocan Lamb with Chickpeas? It is so good and LDL friendly. Well, I cook the beans instead of buying canned beans and I have so much left I make the soup too. It has golden raisins and cinnamon added to it and gives such an interesting mix of flavors: sweet and savory. Yum! I'll try to get it in the recipes for main dishes if something similar isn't already there. Love you!

Nice! I LOVE Moroccan flavors, Crick! Actually, I love flavors from so many countries and continents. It stops food from getting boring when you try new spices, herbs, and flavors, doesn't it? We are so blessed to live in an age where we can get spices and ingredients from all over the world in our local supermarkets.

I am heading down to put some dried garbonzos in the pressure cooker and I am going to make this soup!! I am still in Alaska and my grand daughter is coming home today so I will be able to see her for a few days before I leave. I am finally over my cold after 3 weeks (good news) but I can now smell the dog! (bad news) I am still under 230 lbs and am ready to stick with some discipline! Life is good.
