This slightly sweet soup is rightly named "Golden Harvest Soup" (page 148), with no less than seven yellow and orange ingredients contributing to the golden hue: yellow onion, carrots, sweet potatoes, yellow bell pepper, yellow tomatoes, chickpeas, and turmeric. Add to this some garlic, herbs, and a flavorful broth, throw in a handful of small soup pasta (cooked with the turmeric before adding), and you've got a hearty main dish soup, just the thing on chilly evenings. What says nutritious and delicious better than a pot full of vegetable soup?
Keeping it "McDougall Friendly" checklist:
- Omit the oil when sautéing the veggies; use a non-stick soup pot instead and/or use water, broth, or sherry as a sauté liquid.
