    Hey gang, just tried a new recipe my wife wanted from Gluten-free Goddess website. I think it came out pretty good and had a great flavor. I will be posting the main ingredients and the link to the other website so you can give it a try. But my main reason for posting is that this is a non-traditional recipe. wondering who has made this kind of soup before and what is different from traditional recipes. thanks for any replies.

    ingredient list-

    Vegan Mulligatawny Detox Soup Recipe

    This delectable post-modern version of mulligatawny is deliciously complex. The chick peas give it a boost of protein; the apple gives it a sweet-tart kick. Use organic vegetables for maximum detox. Adjust spices if you prefer a mild soup- cayenne pepper has heat.

    1 tablespoon avocado oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 inch fresh ginger, grated
    2 teaspoons mild GF organic curry powder[​IMG]
    1 teaspoon organic turmeric[​IMG]
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, more or less, to taste
    1 medium sweet or red onion, peeled, diced
    4 medium carrots, peeled and diced
    1 cup cauliflower florets, chopped
    2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
    1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced
    2 heaping cups thinly shredded cabbage
    1 quart fresh spring water
    2 cups organic Super Veggie Juice[​IMG]
    1 14-oz. can organic chick peas[​IMG], drained
    A small pinch of sea salt, to taste
    1 14-oz. can coconut milk[​IMG], stirred
    Juice from 1 medium lime, or to taste
    1-2 teaspoons gluten-free brown rice syrup[​IMG]

    For garnish:

    Thin apple slices or shredded apple
    Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

    My recipe is similar, but  I use lamb  if I can.

    I've always called this the soup that eats like a meal.

    Great Soup Gunnar,

    When I was taught by Shanti and the Mehta's , we always added cumin (jeerakam) 2tsp , I realize that every region has its flavor but many of the areas I traveled put cumin . It brings out a lovely flavor.

    Well just wanted to add to what is mentioned

    /img/vbsmilies/smilies/talker.gif

    The Traditional Mulligatawany Soup , is made with Mutton ( goats meat), the other thing is that there is 1 ingredient that is essential to the list you mentioned in the recipe...

    CURRY LEAVES

    the dish is a south indian derivative and needs that to bring out the flavors of the coconut and spices... try it people you would notice and love the subtle aroma it imparts..

    If needed can send you the recipe of the Soup

    have fun and good eating

    I've used those leaves in several "americanized" indian dishes and the label on the package of leaves was spelled the word "Kari".  Being an american I suppose that curry = "Kari".
