Moroccan zucchini soup
We had this the other night and it was awesome and super simple to make.
2 C dried chickpeas, soaked overnight
1 bay leaf
1 lg onion, chopped fine
2 teaspoons garam masala
5 cups low-sodium veg broth + extra water as needed
1 (28-oz) can diced tomatoes
2 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup plain whole wheat couscous
¼ cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 cups large chunk TVP
Drain and rinse the chickpeas, cover them with the broth, add the bay leaf and simmer for about 1 hr, or until tender.
When the chickpeas are tender, saute the onions in a separate pan until they go translucent, add the garlic and saute a minute more. Add the onions to the chick peas, and deglaze the pan with a little bit of chickpea liquid.
Add the rest of the ingredients and some extra water if needed and cook until the TVP is tender.
