|1 tablespoon||Veg. oil (I use less)|
|1||Sweet peppers (I prefer red), seeded, chopped (up to 2)|
|1 large||Tomato (I use stewed homegrown; there's more than 1 in the container, so I use more than one) chopped|
|2 teaspoons||(or more) chopped fresh ginger|
|2½ teaspoon||Curry powder (choose one you like)|
|1½ teaspoon||Ground cumin|
|1 teaspoon||Salt (I think it could use more)|
|¼ teaspoon||Ground cayenne (ditto about "more")|
|6 cups||Water (I always use homemade veg. stock here)|
|1 large||Parsnip, peeled & diced (Never have 'em on hand; have used turnip, cooked, cubed butternut squash, carrots, whatever instead)|
|1 medium||Potato (pref. Yukon gold type), peeled, diced|
|½ cup||Raisins (I use finely chopped dates instead)|
|2||Red apples, unpeeled, diced|
|15 ounces||Canned chickpeas (Never use 'em; I make black eye peas or navy beans, from dry, instead) If using canned, rinse very well.|
my variation of a recipe from VEGETARIAN RICE CUISINE (The first night, I serve this as soup over rice. If I combine leftovers, it is definitely a fork-type meal when reheated the next day. My husband takes it to work and reheats it in the microwave. I have made double batches and frozen it to be prepared later with fresh rice.) (Serve over rice; make rice per number of people being served. I use basmati.)
Heat the oil in a large, pref. nonstick, saucepan; add onion, peppers, tomatoes and ginger. Saute 5-7 min.. Add seasonings; saute for 1 min. more.
Stir in the water/stock, parsnip (whatever), potato, raisins/dates...and cook over low-med. heat about 15 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in the apples and cook about 20 min. more. Stir in the cooked beans; cook 5-10 min. more.
Meanwhile, prepare the rice as you usually would.
When the soup is ready to serve, spoon the rice into bowls or large mugs; ladle the mulligatawny of the top. Serve with a good whole grain bread or pita or whatever strikes your fancy.
