Spicy chickpea soup

A couple of days ago, I wrote about They Draw&Cook. I shared this recipe with you:

Well, now I can say that this recipe was a great success! It was tasty, unique, smooth and fancy-feeling. I made a couple of changes to the recipe:
- I subbed chilli flakes for the Jalapeno pepper and green beans (and frozen at that!) for spinach, because I didn't have any.
- I used a lactose-free cream, so that I could eat this yummy soup too!
- I pureed the soup, to make it creamy and smooth with an immersion blender.
- We served this with some grilled pangasius, which was an excellent combination! A bite of fish, and a spoon-full of soup...yum!

And I just have to share this awesome picture with you. This is my cousin Kendra, on family reunion. Do you see any resemblance?

  2. yumm!! did you use herbs from the garden?

  3. @Tyler I sure did, Tyler! That parsley on top of the soup is straight from the garden! It's so fun to have and I think of you every time I use it!

  4. You've got such a pretty blog!
