Love for Food + Soup

New Alice's Tea Cup cookbook

This is the year of the soups for me. Every week I make a different soup and freeze half and eat the other half. It's the only thing I can think of eating when I come home from Riker's. They are fast and healthy and not too bad in calories. I need something warm and soothing in the tummy. I got this recipe from my new Alice's Tea Cup cookbook. When I saw it I knew I had to make it. I love spicy, Thai food, and chickpeas. It's pretty tasty and offers a little something different than my normal soup repertoire. The spice helps clear up any nasal congestion. Give it a try and let me know what you think! Ingredients: Serves Eight 2 tbs unsalted butter 1/4 cup minced jalapeno pepper 1/2 cup chopped celery 3/4 cup chopped yellow onion 8 cups stock/chicken broth 1 13.5 oz can light coconut milk 1 12.5 oz can crushed tomatoes 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 2 13.5 oz can chickpeas drained salt/pepper Method:
