Burmese tomato-chickpea soup with lemongrass
Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Soy-Free
The complex flavors in this simple soup come by way of Burma, where the cuisine draws from China, India, and Thailand. The chickpeas lend it texture and protein, while the mix of lemongrass, ginger, and turmeric takes the broth in an intriguing and delicious direction. The heat from the (optional) chile flakes is tempered by a soothing dose of yogurt.
