Creamy Golden Curry Soup

Golden dream of a soup.

I love curry, dearly. I don’t believe there’s been one week that’s gone by, for the last 3 years, that i haven’t had some form of curry.

This soup is a part of my ‘foods i have every week’ edition on Youtube and for good reason. Loaded with protein, and beautiful fresh elements; the flavors in this soup are vibrant. Blended soups and I have come a long way and it was this recipe along with my Roasted Squash & Pepper Soup that really got me excited to make them at home.

When i’m busy working through the week, exhausted at the end of a long  day or simply want to have something hearty prepped  in the freezer- this is my go to soup.

It’s also one of my favorites to serve for friends.

Visually this dish is -wow- and I love getting creative with the toppings depending on what i have on hand at the time. Roasted cashews add such a nice bite and the fresh produce gives a fresh balance to the cooked elements.

I hope a dish I enjoy weekly makes it to your rotation of yummy meals!

For this recipe you can use canned chickpeas and lentils; or you can use lentils and chickpeas that you have soaked (overnight preferably)
To soak your chickpeas and lentils :
Chickpeas- place the dried chickpeas in a large bowl and add 3x drinkable water on top. They will triple in size nearly – so they need lots of water. Cover and let sit overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning. Add them to a pressure cooker, add water (about an inch above the chickpeas) and cook for 15 minutes on high pressure. They should be easily pressed with a fork at the end.  
Lentils-  in a separate large bowl add dried lentils and enough drinkable water to cover them by 2 inches. Soak overnight, then drain, rinse and use. I don’t pressure cook the lentils before adding them to the soup, as they are small and cook great in the soup after their soak.
If you don’t have tomato sauce, you can sub 1 tbsp tomato paste or 1 large fresh tomato, chopped 
6 cups of water will make a thicker soup, 8 will make a lighter soup
I used soaked cashews for this recipe. After soaked and rinsed – i dried them out. Then, toasted on my cast iron until golden
If you don’t have an immersion blender, not to fret! Simply blend half of the soup at a time, in a blender (making sure the soup is a bit cooled beforehand. You don’t want to pop/explode  your plastic blender.
