Root vegetable mulligatawny

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Veg. oil (I use less)
1 \N Onion, chopped
1 \N 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 \N 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.
