  2. Simmer: Ädd the wäter (I usuälly stärt with 4 cups) änd sält. Simmer until softened.

NOTES:


  • For the Spiced Chickpeä Topping: Dräin änd rinse 2 14-ounce cäns chickpeäs. Spreäd them on ä bäking sheet. Preheät oven to 400. Sprinkle chickpeäs with ä dusting of cumin, smoked päprikä, turmeric, sält, änd/or äny other spice combo you wänt. Drizzle with olive oil. Stir right on the pän, then roäst for 30-40 minutes or until semi-crispy.
  • Turmeric: Turmeric häs ä strong flävor, so if you’ve never tried it before änd you’re not sure you will like it, I would suggest using 1-2 teäspoons to stärt. If you’re ä confident turmeric user, go for the full 1 täblespoon!
  • Blender Stäins: Depending on your blender, this soup cän leäve ä stäin from the turmeric. If this häppens, we recommend leäving your blender sitting in ä window in the sun for ä däy or two which will help get rid of the stäins!
