This is an incredibly good tasting and healthful soup; it will also help maintain stable blood-sugar levels, leading to greater long-term satisfaction after your meal. The original recipe. listing ingredient amounts is found on page 170 of Original Fast Foods. As you watch the video, note the one substitution of 2 cups of carrot juice for 2 of the 6 cups of water. That substitution increases the flavor to an extent that any restaurant would be proud to carry it; it is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

If you saute the onions and celery in a bit of the cooking water over very low heat until the onions begin to brown before adding the rest of the ingredients. It will enhance the flavor and eliminate the need for boullion. I never use it and cook bean based soups almost daily.

Where do you get the garam masala? I have looked for it before and can't seem to find it.
Comment by James Simmons on March 11, 2010 at 10:43am
Garum masala can be found in any grocery store in the spice section; we have really enjoyed the Spice Hunter brand, although I'm sure there are many other fine brands available. In Utah Valley, we can get this spice at Maceys, Albertsons, Good Earth, and so forth. It's a common spice.

Tried this recipe last night. I have to say, it's one of my favorites! I even put a couple of large spoonfuls of the carrot pulp back into the soup right before it was finished cooking. It turned out great! I think I'll put even more next time.
