Roasted Carrot and Chickpea Soup with Moroccan Spiced Toast
(adapted from Fresh Living Magazine May 2015)
Toss 75g red onion, 225g baby carrots (3 Veg), ½ tsp crushed garlic, ½ tsp crushed ginger, ½ tsp ground cumin and 5ml olive oil (1 Fat) together in a Ziplock plastic bag – shake to coat properly.
Transfer to baking sheet, season well with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper and roast for 25 minutes or until soft.
Once done, add to 300ml veggie stock and 75g chickpeas (1 Prot) and simmer for a few minutes for flavours to mix. Blitz with handblender and serve with fresh coriander.
The original recipe calls for dukkha, but I didn’t have a home and I didn’t want the extra fat portion (nuts added to dukkha) so I took 1.5 slices Albany Ultima bread (1 CC), cut it into strips and sprinkled it with Woolies Moroccan rub. Toasted in the oven until crisp and browned. Dunk it in the soup – really yummy!
