Crazy Good Hummus Soup
Super easy, deliciously creamy vegan soup that will become one of your favorites ;)
of dried chickpea cooked or 2 cans of chickpeas
drained and rinsed
of vegetable broth or water
I used organic, low sodium
peeled and chopped
of coconut oil
juice and peel from one organic lemon
salt and fresh pepper to taste
If using dried beans: Soak beans overnight.Drain and rinse. Cook for about 90 min.
In a large pot melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Add in the chopped onion and heat over medium for several minutes, stirring often. After a few minutes, add in the minced garlic and stir on low heat.
Add in paprika, turmeric, salt and fresh ground pepper. Stir for another minute or two, careful not to burn, adding little bit of water if necessary.
Now add in the chickpea, carrots and vegetable broth. Stir well and bring to a boil. Once it boils, reduce heat to simmer for another 15-20 minutes or until carrots are tender.
Turn off the heat,carefully transfer soup into a high speed blender (vitamix).
Add in tahini, lemon juice and lemon peel.
Blend until smooth. Be very careful opening the blender as it could explode and splash you!
Pour into bowls and serve with garnish ( cilantro, parsley, lemon juice, paprika)
