The first time I had this soup was when I lived in Bellingham, WA while I was attending WWU. Tony’s coffee shop served it, and it was amazing. Now, 20 some years later and Tony’s Coffee is a big deal with it’s own coffee brand that you can buy through Kroger’s.
Maybe my nostalgia made me want that soup again, but also just these naturally vegan ethnic foods are my favorite meals: Indian, Middle Eastern and Ethiopian for example.
I found this recipe and followed it pretty closely except I left out the spicy chile pepper (for the kids), and I blended it with my immersion blender except for about a cup of it which I stirred back in. I also grated a little ginger into it since that is how I remember it. This recipe was pretty easy! Found it on Oh My Veggies, which looks like a great resource, will definitely check out the other recipes on the site.
