Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the beets and carrots. Drizzle with oil, toss and sprinkle the seasoning over top. Toss again.
  • Lay flat on a baking tray lined with foil.

  • Toss the chickpeas in the oil and salt and lay on the baking tray also (or on separate trays).
  • Place in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, flip the veggies and roll the chickpeas and cook another 15 minutes.
  • Once finished, remove the veggies from the tray but allow the chickpeas to cool on the tray in the oven (ensuring they’re hard and crispy but not burnt).
  • To make the soup
  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium to high.
  • Add in the onion and ginger and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until onion is soft.

  • Return to the pot.

Notes

  • This vegan beet soup is made using curry spices to give it a comforting feel. If you’re not a curry lover though, feel free to omit the curry powder and cumin.
  • Don’t skip the roasting part of the beets. This releases their flavors and gives the soup a sweeter flavor.
  • The soup is best eaten immediately. However, if you need to store it, it lasts in the fridge for 3-5 days. That said, you may want to add some water to thin it when you reheat. And remember, don’t add the chickpeas into the soup until you’re ready to eat. Adding them in before storing them will make them mushy.
