1/2 a small onion diced
3 cloves small garlic sliced
1" ginger sliced
1Tbsp corn oil ( I prefer canola but haven't found it yet)
1 small leek chopped and rinsed for sand
1.5 c cooked beans these are called "Cow Gram" (sub. 1 can rinsed chickpeas)
3Tbsp Knorr Chicken Broth mix (the kind I bought here seems puffed up so probably only 2 scant Tbsp of regular soup mix would be needed)
4 cups water
In a deep pot fry the onions in oil until golden around the edges, add garlic and ginger fry a few more . Add, soup base, then add drained, rinsed beans stir a bit. Add drained, rinsed leeks along with the four cups of water. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 20 min until the leeks are a texture/color you enjoy.
Serves 2 generously... I'd double the recipe for a family... I put a cup of hot rice in the bottom of a bowl and topped with the soup and added soy sauce... it was delish that way too!
Here's a link to more photos of how I put it together. (I only used half of the ginger shown.)
