Grown-up flavors in a easy to make soup. This is a great make ahead soup (can be made a day ahead) and because it doesn't have to be warmed, it is great for those hot summer evenings or a quick refreshment when taking a rest from the drive!
This Middle Eastern favorite is made of ground chickpeas. Falafel tastes great combined with cucumber, yogurt, red onions, tomatoes, and beans of any kind. You can make your falafel from a mix or follow the recipe below for homemade patties.
While I am not a chili aficionado, I know what I like when it comes to food. We found a canned (sorry, I said canned) vegetarian chili that tastes great by itself. But as with any good canned food, it could use a little spicing up! A little onion and jalapeño and some spices did just the trick!!! ENJOY!!!
