Description[edit]

This make-ahead recipe keeps in the refrigerator for up to four days and up to two months in the freezer. For a main dish option, add cooked, diced chicken or turkey breast to the pot in the last 20 minutes of cooking. Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream and chopped cilantro.

ChupaNote: add some rehydrated TVP or baked tofu squares or seitan to the last 20 minutes of cooking. We added: another large sweet onion, 2 more teaspoons minced garlic, 1½ more teaspoons ginger, and replaced the black pepper with 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Next time, double the curry powder too!!! Served with minced fresh bell peppers in green, red and yellow. Nice contrast with the soup.
