I'm calling this Wedding Soup because it will slim me down more before my son's wedding ;-) You can add or delete any veggies that you like! You can even add potato chunks. It's a flexible soup!

1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thinly
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
3 organic carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
8 oz. baby bella or button mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 medium zucchini, chopped
One 28-oz. can crushed organic tomatoes with basil
1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

Easy Chana Masala


I modified the Minimalist Baker "Easy Chana Masala" recipe (link below) to make it even easier and more palatable for my family.
NOTE: I left out the oil, serrano peppers, and lemon juice--on purpose. I used less red chili powder because we're weenies!

Here's what I did:
Water-sauteed the chopped onion in a large sauce pot until tender and translucent. Then, I add the chopped cilantro, ginger, and garlic and cooked another 2 minutes. After that, I added in the crushed tomatoes, water, the coconut sugar, and ALL of the dry spices listed. Finally, I added in the cooked garbanzo beans and brought everything to a gentle rolling boil, reduced heat, and simmered (covered) for 30 minutes, stirring often. We served this over Basmati rice, and it was FABULOUS!!!
NOTE: The chili powder she refers to in the recipe is INDIAN chili powder, not Mexican. If you don't have Indian chili powder, use a SMALL amount of cayenne pepper, adding more a little at a time.

Here's what I put in:
1 yellow onion, finely diced
1 T ground cumin
3/4 tsp sea salt, or more to taste
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 T crushed ginger
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 T ground coriander
1/4-1/2 t Indian red chili powder (more if you like it really spicy)
1 t ground turmeric
1 t garam masala
1 T coconut sugar
1 28-oz can no-salt-added crushed tomatoes
2 15-ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
