    Soup Ingredients
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • tamarind sauce, to taste
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, optional

    Green Chutney Ingredients
  • 2 cups cilantro
  • 1 cup mint
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 jalapeno
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/4 water

Chop & Simmer

Chop the onion, garlic, and ginger and simmer in a 1/2 cup of vegetable broth. Once the onions and garlic are soft, add in the potatoes, peas, chickpeas, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, lite coconut milk, and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of vegetable broth. Cook on medium for about 20-25 minutes.

Blend the Chutney

While the soup is cooking, combine the cilantro, mint, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, jalapeño, and green onions in your Vitamix, food processor, or blender. Carefully pour in the water while the ingredients blend so you don’t make it too thin. The chutney should be a little soupy in consistency, but not overly thin.
