Samosa Soup

I’ve recently seen Samosa Pizza and Samosa Pockets that looked amazing. And subsequently I heard of a Samosa Soup that’s popular with the students here on campus. Since a blast of cool air came through last night, today I made a big ol’ pot. No wonder it’s so popular – it’s fantastic. Here’s my version of this hearty, flavorful soup.




Samosa Soup

Ingredients:
1 T. olive oil
2 t. mustard seeds
1 yellow onion, diced
½ t. chili powder
1 t. tumeric
½ t. cayenne
½ t. curry powder
½ t. coriander
½ t. garam masala
½ t. cumin
1 T. fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. potatoes, diced
1 lb. cauliflower, chopped
1 lb. bag frozen peas and carrots
3 c. vegetable broth
1 can lite coconut milk
8 oz. fresh spinach, chopped
¼ c. fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
1 t. salt
½ t. black pepper

Directions:
Heat oil in a soup pot. Add mustard seeds, cover, and let them pop. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add spices (except salt and pepper), ginger, garlic, potatoes, cauliflower, and peas and carrots. Cook a minute or two, mixing well and coating vegetables with spices. Add broth. Simmer, covered, until potatoes and cauliflower are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add coconut milk, spinach, cilantro, and lemon juice. Simmer 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.



Enjoy!

What an intriguing soup!! Love all the flavors.

Erik said...

I love how well-known ethnic dishes can be so readily converted to a soup to make it more accessible to the home cook. I would never have known how to make samosas, but this seems like a really good alternative.
Nice post!

Urban Vegan said...

That's a seriously good idea.

Andrea said...

This really does look fantastic. I wish I'd seen it before I made dinner tonight. This is a soup I will definitely make soon. Such a great idea.

River said...

This soup looks so chunky and delish!

Veg-a-Nut said...

Your soup looks perfect and oh so tasty!

Ricki said...

I can tell from the list of spices alone that I'd love this. . . add that coconut milk, and I'm definitely sold!

Georgia said...

oh that looks good - although it is spring here now and I am not making soup so much - this is getting bookmarked for next autumn when I start craving warmer foods.

shellyfish said...

This sounds so good - and less work than making samosas! Bookmarking this for when I can put some weight on my silly foot to make it!
Thanks for your kind words on my blog :)

eileen said...

oh, this sounds like an excellent idea! I can't be the only one not especially into creating the requisite pot of boiling oil to fry samosas at home. A soup version is genius.

Amey said...

Dang! this sounds totally freaking great. Way to innovate. What a great idea to take all those tried and trusted flavors and put them in a soup. mmm mmm mm!

Erin said...

Your soup looks DIVINE! I'm definitely holding onto this recipe, thanks!

Tofu Mom (AKA Tofu-n-Sprouts) said...

Oh WOW... This looks SO yummy! I am bookmarking this page to try when I can gather all the ingredients.

Jackie said...

Yum the recipe is great. I see I have all the spices and always have coconut milk on hand so all I need is the veggies and a cooler evening (which funnily enough we always get mid-Summer when the kids here start their leave) and shall try it out.

funwithyourfood said...

I'm totally digging this with sweet potatos right now... mmm

allularpunk said...

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.

They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
