TARO CHIPS & CHICKPEA MASH

LENTIL VEGETABLE SOUP

i first made this as a brownie (a mini girl scout) and for years after (and still kind of to this day) we’ve called it “brownie soup.” and “fart soup.” it was originally pretty bland – vegetable stock, cabbage, carrots and celery – and has evolved slightly throughout the years. my current favorite version includes some aromatics, grains and legumes to butch it up a bit.
