Image by Ruthieki
I discovered this recipe in another of the Moosewood cookbooks– The Enchanted Brocoli Forest. I like bean soups and soups with exotic seasonings, so I imagined I might like this one particular. I cooked it, and I like it. It really is got a whole lot of flavors going on, but I think that’s a very good factor. Try out it and report back what you consider.
Galician Garbanzo Soup, Serves ~8
6 cups Garbanzos (I utilised one bag dried garbanzo beans, soaked overnight and cooked for one hr)
four one/two cups water
1 T Oil
two cups chopped onion
6 cloves garlic, minced
one potato, diced
one carrot, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
one one/two tsp salt
1 bay leaf
two tsp dry mustard
2 tsp cumin
two tsp basil
black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 cup peas (frozen is fine)
3 T red wine vinegar
one can diced tomatoes
one.) Puree two/3 of the garbanzos in a blender with a lot of water. Set the rest of the cooked garbanzos aside.
2.) Sautee onion, 1/2 the garlic, the potato, carrot and celery in olive oil in the bottom of your soup pot for ~10 minutes.
three.) Include the garbanzo puree and the seasonings. Simmer gently for ~ 30 minutes.
four.) Add remaining garlic, peas, tomato, vinegar. Simmer ~five minutes. Eat.
Note: In the image there is rosemary utilized as a garnish. Nevertheless, right after I took the picture I ate the soup and the rosemary did not taste very excellent in there. If you want to garnish, consider anything else: toasted cumin seeds, yogurt, parsley, etc.
