Homey and Comforting with a bit of heat, this Indian Spiced Roasted Squash Soup, topped with crispy Chickpeas, is bursting with flavors and will you warm you to the bone!
Oh hey last week of October, whats up? I don’t think I am ready to say goodbye to you quite yet. I’m pretty sure when I open my eyes tomorrow its going to be the New Year. And then what? I’m not ready for a new beginning yet…I’m still working on my current story.
Can anyone else believe how unimaginably fast, this year has gone? I feel like I say that every year, but I just cannot get a grasp on time moving so quickly. Do you remember when you were little, and time went sooooo slow? I mean, it felt like the difference between Halloween and Christmas was yearsss, and we always wanted it to go quicker, and it just felt like it would “never get here!”
Well, if I could go back, just for one year, to slow time down that much-I’d do it in a second. I read something recently, that kind of hit home; We always think we have more time and that is the wrong way to think, because time is something we never have enough of. My youngest is about to turn two and we’re talking about switching him into a toddler bed soon and beginning to potty train him. My 3 year old has outgrown his car-seat and I’m currently on the hunt for a booster seat. I just can’t get a handle on it all. I’m going to be waking up next week to my oldest graduating high school and my youngest getting his license. (Que the tears)Time truly is something we don’t have enough of..
What does time have to do with this fantastically flavored soup? Absolutely nada. But time is where my head is currently at. I go to bed every night thinking about the million things I need to do and how there is not enough time to get them all done. I know so many of us are in that boat, I’m not complaining, though I know it sounds that way–it’s just crazy to me.
But this soup? This soup is not crazy to me. It’s incredible. It’s warm and cozy, it’s filling and really healthy, though you wouldn’t even know it. It tastes creamy and rich with a whole lot of heat. If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, just eliminate the cayenne, it will still be equally as tasty! The crispy chickpeas on top add just the right amount of texture, and if you want to get wild, crusty bread is a perfect pairing with this squash soup as well.
It will warm you to the heart, and through your bones. There is no better soup for these chilly nights!
