This Thai chickpea soup is light and filling, all at the same time. Delicious too!

There’s nothing like a big bowl of warm, steaming soup when cooler weather starts to roll in.

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup celery (sliced thin)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 30 oz. canned light coconut milk
  • 15 oz. can tomato sauce (no sugar added)
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 3-4 limes)
  • 30 oz. canned chickpeas (drained - or 4 cups if you make them from dry beans)
  • 3 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 tbsp. whole wheat pastry flour (can also use cornstarch or arrowroot powder)
  • 2 cups tomatoes (chopped)
  • 2 cups crimini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 lb. shrimp (I used cooked/frozen, which I thawed before use)


  • Sauté the onion and celery in a large soup pot until the onions are translucent.
  • Put everything, except the shrimp, into the pot and cook until the mushrooms are soft and cooked through.
  • When the soup is nearly done, add in the shrimp and cook just long enough to cook them to your liking.
  • Allow to cool and serve.
