RECIPE: Mulligatawny Soup

Oh, the joy that this soup brings me. It is perfect in so many ways- it's hearty, it's got veggies, it's got curry, & it's so tasty.

Assemble ingredients:
1 TB olive oil
½ onion, chopped
1 cup peeled chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 TB curry powder
6 cups chicken broth (or veggie broth)
½ peeled and chopped Granny Smith
2 cups cooked rice, white or brown
2 cups cooked, diced chicken (or none)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp black pepper
¾ cup whipping cream

Add carrots, celery, & onion to oil & cook until soft.

Add flour & curry & stir for about a minute.

Add broth & bring to a simmer.

Add the chopped apple, rice, chicken, salt, thyme, and pepper.

Simmer 8-10 minutes & you have to stir it every once in a while because it will stick if you don't.

Add the cream, warm the soup through, and serve.

It's a great flexible recipe- you can add more liquid to make it more soup-y or more rice to make it heartier. You can add spicier curry to give it a kick. You can make it vegetarian. You can also use cashew cream instead of heavy cream.

My family is ga-ga for this soup & I always double it when I make it because it freezes really well for later enjoyment.

P.S. We also served this at Lincolns' blessing party & people LOVED it!

I love this soup - just made it last week, in fact!

It's amazing how tasty it is. PS. I used nonfat greek yogurt instead of heavy cream this last time. It definitely wasn't as good.
