1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion, diced
3-4 large potatoes, chopped
2 cans vegetable broth (284 ml)
2 cans chickpeas (540 ml)
4 cups water
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
a pinch of cinnamon
2 cups cooked rice
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in large pot. Add onions and spices and sauté for 5 minutes on medium-high.
Add potatoes, vegetable broth and water. Bring to a boil. When potatoes are soft (approx. 20 minutes), add chick peas. Cook for about 10 minutes. Add rice, salt and pepper.*
This soup tastes surprisingly similar to chicken soup, and it's just as hearty (if not more!).
*These are general directions because I've only made the soup once (it was an accidental creation), so feel free to play around with the quantities.
