Wholesome Vegetarian Tikka Masala Soup

Wholesome Vegetarian Tikka Masala Soup

This delicious and nutritious tikka masala vegetarian soup hits all the rights spots especially when the days outside are filled with an icy chill in the air. We have been having some glorious sunshine during the day here in Johannesburg but if you happen to be standing in the shade and the rays of the sun aren’t hitting you then you feel that winter chill that I speak off. Our homes in South Africa are also not equipped for the colder months and having a door ajar with that icy breeze wafting through the house basically makes me want to stay indoors and cook up a storm in my warm kitchen.

Tikka Masala is one of the most widely cooked and sold dishes around the globe and rightfully so. This vegetarian tikka masala soup serves up all the delicious flavours that you would expect from this world renowned dish and it is so simple to make. McCain Garden Mix (linked for ease of reference) simplifies the cooking process and saves you time. Combined with the vegetables from McCain, I’ve used simple spices (that you might already have in your pantry), butter, tomatoes, onions, garlic, coriander and cream to create this mouthwatering soup. You can pair it with some delicious crusty bread or even steamed basmati rice and you have a winning meal on the table.
