This is a soup that I came up with a few years ago. After being invited to a holiday party,
we were told by the hostess if we wished to bring a dish it was welcome.
Thinking about my options, I came up with this spicy soup, brought it along and set it up in a tureen after reheating it quickly in the microwave. To go with the soup, I also made a bread with a chewy crust and Kalamata olives. The soup is rich,creamy and delicious. No surprise it was a huge success at the party.
I love this soup for the multiple and complex flavors, the heat and heartiness, and that it can be made with little effort. A great starter, I like to hand out small cups to my guests to ease their hunger until dinner is served.
You can easily double or triple this recipe, depending on the guest list.
Hummus is one of the easiest, most healthful snacks there is. Nearly surpassing salsa and guacamole...
