Simple and savory biscuits are perfect for dunking in our warm spiced soup, but if you’re short on time, swap them out by adding cubed redskin potatoes to this Clean Eating recipe for a quicker (and gluten-free!) alternative that's just as filling.
1 cup whole-wheat flour, plus additional for dusting
1 tbsp dried basil
1½ tsp baking powder
1⁄4 tsp sea salt
3 oz plain Greek yogurt (not nonfat)
1 tsp olive oil
1 carrot, sliced into rounds
1 tbsp curry powder
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 head cauliflower, florets only
1 15-oz BPA-free can unsalted chickpeas, with juices
3 oz feta cheese, crumbled
Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
Preheat oven to 450˚F. In a large bowl, whisk flour, basil, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk yogurt and 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp water. Fold yogurt mixture into flour mixture until just combined. (TIP: If too thick, add more water in 1-tbsp increments; dough should be a bit thicker than pizza dough.) Let rest.
Lightly dust work surface with flour and turn dough out onto surface. Press into a rough disc and use a rolling pin to roll dough ½-inch thick. With a 2-inch round biscuit cutter or the rim of a small glass, cut out 12 biscuits. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat oil on medium. Add carrot and curry powder and sauté, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
Add broth and 3 cups water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add cauliflower and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in chickpeas with juices and simmer for 5 more minutes, until carrot and cauliflower are tender. Top with cheese and cilantro and serve with biscuits.
Serving Size: 1 1/2 cup of soup, 3/4 oz feta, 3 biscuts
Traditionally cooked in a tall earthenware pot known as a tagine, the North African dish of the same name is a saucy, spiced stew that’ll warm you from the inside out. Our quick and easy recipe is vegetarian, and chock-full of hearty veggies and chickpeas for a truly satisfying dish.
A drop of tasty coconut milk is used in place of oil to brown the chicken in this soup and adds the rich flavor beloved in Indian cuisine. If you prefer a citrusy, herbal taste instead, try swapping the cilantro for fresh parsley and a squeeze of lime.
