Lemongrass, ginger, and turmeric permeate this one-pan vegetarian soup with flavor inspired by the cuisine of Burma, a warming finish to the day.
In your bag
- 1½ cups cooked chickpeas
- 1 red onion
- Sun Basket lemongrass paste (lemongrass - olive oil - fresh garlic - fresh ginger - turmeric)
- ½ teaspoon kimchi chile flakes (optional)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1 lime
- 3 scallions
- 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
For elegant, slender scallion garnishes, cut the scallions in half crosswise, then cut them lengthwise into ⅛-inch-thick strips. Soak the strips in ice water. Drain and pat dry before serving.
Make It Ahead
The soup (Steps 1 through 3) can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, gently rewarm the soup, adding more water as needed to maintain a brothy consistency. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and proceed with Steps 4 and 5.
