Chickpea,Sweet Potato,Corn Chowder

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp oil of your choice or omit
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot. Add onions and tomatoes. Stirring occasionally for a 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and cumin. Stirring for a further 5 minutes.
  3. This is where a lot of the flavour is going to develop. You want a slight crust to start to develop, before adding the broth.
  4. Add the remaining spices and the sweet potato. Stirring until well coated.
  5. Stirring occasionally for a further 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add the vegetable stock, stirring well. Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered.
  7. When the sweet potatoes are halfway cooked (about 15 minutes) add the chickpeas and corn. Mix well.
  8. Cover and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  9. Serve hot & enjoy!

Notes

Fresh corn is a great option to canned. Frozen is great as well. Toss in the soup from frozen.

Canned & drained chickpeas work just as well. I just used dried chickpeas and cooked them ahead of time.

You can substitute the sweet potato for another root vegetable of your choice. White or red potato. Turnips. Yams. Carrots.

Omit the chili flakes if you do not like spice.

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Ingredients

  • 8-10 mini sweet red peppers or 3 standard size sweet red peppers, roasted
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil, butter, or vegan butter
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth or plain water
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp salt or omit
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp of sugar. Optional, only add if needed, after checking the seasoning about half way through cooking.

Instructions

  1. Heat grapeseed oil or butter in a medium sized pot.
  2. Cook onions & garlic on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until they are translucent. Stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the chili pepper, salt, roasted peppers, bay leaf & thyme. Stirring for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the stock & bring to a boil. Then bring it down to a low simmer, covered for 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the vinegar.
  6. Taste and adjust any seasonings. Add the sugar, if needed.
  7. Simmer for another few minutes.
  8. Cool slightly and puree until smooth. Or leave it a little chunky.
  9. Serve hot & Enjoy!

Notes

You can roast the peppers in the oven, on a gas range, the outside grill. Or make it easy on yourself and by them from the grocery store, already roasted. They are canned, in glass jars or in some deli sections.

This soup tastes even better the next day. If you are serving it to guests, make it the day before. Refrigerate it & heat through before serving.
