I have made this a couple of times after testing out the vegan waters. Even though I didn’t stick to that lifestyle, I did stick to this soup! It is one of the easiest and most flavorful comfort foods you will ever have, I promise! Everyone that tries it can't get enough :P I have always loved foods that are full of flavor and Thai foods are all about it! The curry in this soup really tastes wonderful. Its so amazing that just a simple curry powder can create such a kick-ass soup. Serving this soup over jasmine rice, with some avocado slices and warm naan are is like a warm blanket on a cold winter day... how can you hold back the smile?
Not only does this soup taste SO good, it is also packed with nutrients. The chickpeas are loaded with protein and so many veggies! Its really hard to believe this creamy spicy hearty soup is good for you :)
I don't know if you can really call this a soup though, I love packing it with so many veggies, chickpeas and serving it over the jasmine rice that it kind of is just a creamy coconut curry rice. Hey who's complaining?!
