Servings 6 meals

Ingredients

  • 2 TBSP coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion medium in size, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 carrot peeled and chopped
  • 3 celery sticks chopped
  • 1 butternut squash small or medium in size, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups broth or water
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tsp cumin + 2 more for chickpeas
  • salt and pepper to taste be generous!
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne optional
  • 1 can of chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups non dairy milk add more if needed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a large pot, heat oil over a medium flame. Add the onion and let cook for about 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  • Add the garlic, carrots, celery,butternut squash, veggie stock, water and spices to the pot. Turn up the heat and stir thoroughly.
  • Once the mixture starts boiling, turn the heat down to a simmer and cover the pot. Let it cook for about 30 mins, until the squash is tender.
  • While the soup cooks, toss the chickpeas in a bowl with salt, pepper and cumin and a dash of oil. Pour them onto a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • After 30 mins is up, add the soup to a blender with some dairy-free milk (I used about 1/2 cup per batch in the blender) and blend until smooth. Repeat until all the soup is blended. You can also use an emulsifier if you have one!
  • Portion out the meals you need in containers and top with chickpeas - as many as you want. Freeze the rest!
