This Southwest inspired vegetarian dish is simple and satisfying (and healthy, too). If you want to go the more conventional route, you can serve the chili in taco shells.


Chickpeas and Vegetable Madras

January 25, 2011

This is from a vegetarian cookbook that is a cult classic in my extended family–although it is out of print and otherwise seems to have been forgotten. All my siblings and my parents have a copy of Carol Gelles’s Wholesome Harvest. My grandmother (Z”L) loved the soup recipes.

My son had two or three servings and said it was the “best meal he ever had.” (more…)
