My fiance and I loved this soup! It was unique, flavorful, and satisfying. I didn't have any vegetable stock so I used chicken stock instead, and I think that substitution worked fine. I'll definitely try it with low-fat sour cream next time to reduce the calories.
This is a unique soup -- it was very warming and filling. I also subbed lowfat sour cream for the heavy cream, and I added some green chili paste and a little paprika in addition to the other spices. I like a little tartness, so I added about a tablespoon or so of fresh lemon juice at the end of cooking. This would have been great with warm grilled pita bread on the side!
I substituted low-fat sour cream for the heavy cream - not the same, I know but unfortunately I need to watch my calories... This is fabulous comfort food - tastes like nothing I've ever cooked. It's spicy but creamy and mild, and I love the texture of potatoes and chickpeas with the spinach.
A delicious soup, with unusual taste sensations and a bit of a kick. I accidentally used half and half instead of heavy cream and the result was still excellent. I also substituted tapioca for corn starch, which was totally fine. This one is going in my regular rotation!
