"This is a savory vegetable soup that permeates a wonderful aroma. Perfect for those brisk fall days. Serve with crusty bread. For a vegetarian soup, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth." — BINGADING

diced peeled sweet potatoes
chopped fresh tomato
1 1/2 cups
cooked garbanzo beans

Yum... loads of veggies and it tastes great too! I am not good at estimating how amounts of veggies translate into cups of ingredients, so I bought too much produce at the store. I learned from it though and hopefully this info will help others: 2 c. sweet potatoes = two smallish sweet potatoes; 2 c. onion = 1 yellow onion; 1/2 c. celery = 3 stalks; 1 c. tomato = 2 small tomatoes (the little ones that come on the vine); 3/4 c. gr. pepper = about 2/3 of a regular green pepper. Woo hoo!
This soup wasn't bad; but it wasn't great either. A little disappointing after all the great reviews.
Definitely double the stock. I skipped the saute step and just put all ingredients in the crock pot on low for 8 or so hours. The house smelled wonderful and the soup was a huge hit with our guests. I doubled the sweet potato just because we enjoy it so much. I subbed soy sauce for tamari and left out the turmeric because I didn't have any. Easy and so satisfying on a cold January night!
I must say that the aroma was absolutely heavenly as this was cooking! My modifications: I cut the oil in half, I added the peppers in with the onions/garlic/sweet taters in the beginning, used a full can of garbanzo beans, cut the salt in half, and added an extra cup of broth (beef instead of chicken because it's what I had on hand). This is a very flavorful soup, and the spice combination is unique for a vegetable soup. Very delicious and I will make again, even in the dead heat of summer.
WOW this was so good. so so so good. It was very hearty and filling, the sort of soup that warms you to the core. Next time I make this I will use more sweet potatoes because they really shine here. I upped the broth to 4 cups. I couldn't find any good fresh tomatoes so I used a small can of diced tomatoes. I included the juice, which gave a really nice acidity to the broth. I really like that this soup lends itself easily to flexibility. People have added squashes, apples... I htink i'd like it with diced carrots. I will make it again, for sure, and maybe I'll get a little adventurous with the ingredient
this was awesome! I added some extra mixed beans, chopped cabbage and barley . The sweet potato is great in this soup. I made a huge pot and froze in containers to take to work for lunch- freezes beautifully and delish reheated!
OMG this is soooo yummy! My husband and I really enjoy Thai food, and he told me this is just like something we'd get there. I substituted the following and it is absolutely delicious and QUICK too!
1)1tsp Paprika, 1tsp ceyenne pepper (instead of 2tsp paprika)
2)curry instead of turmeric
3)1/2 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano instead of 1tsp basil
5)Instead of garbanzo beans, black beans
I added 2 cans of chicken breast to make it a whole meal.
A wonderful soup, we substituted soy sauce as we didn't have the tamari, also changed to another white bean as garbanzo's aren't our favorite..
Great taste, froze the leftover to take to lunch, was even better 2 weeks later!
hearty, spicy and a little sweet.. yumm
