directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.

  • Add the diced carrots and celery to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften.

  • Sprinkle the ground turmeric and paprika over the vegetables and stir well to coat them evenly. Allow the spices to cook for about 1 minute to release their flavors.

  • Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

  • Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy. If using a regular blender, work in batches and be cautious of the hot liquid.

  • Return the blended soup to the pot and stir in the coconut milk. Add the cooked chickpeas and chopped kale or spinach, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Simmer the soup for an additional 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the kale/spinach to wilt.

  • Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley.

  • Serve the Turmeric and Paprika Soup hot and enjoy!
