Moroccan Spiced Tomato Soup

This soup is for those days when time and effort just aren't with you. Seriously, a gorilla could make this soup. So if you're one of those people who claim they "can't cook", just remember, it's gorilla-friendly.

Moroccan Spiced Tomato Soup
1 Tomato (Roma, Hothouse, your choice)
1 tsp Olive Oil
1/3 cup Tomato Paste
1 - 2 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
2 1/2 cups Water
1/3 cup Chickpeas
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
Salt & Pepper to taste

Serves 1.

1. Wash and dice your tomato. Heat up a small pot over low-medium heat, add the olive oil and then the tomato.

2. Add the tomato paste and the peanut butter. (I swear it doesn't taste weird or freaky, trust me!) Stir until the peanut butter is melted and incorporated.

3. Add the water, the chickpeas and the spices. Turn up the heat to medium-high and bring the soup to a boil, stirring occasionally.

4. Serve and adjust the flavouring if necessary. Enjoy! (You can also add some whole grain pasta or other cooked whole grain to get a complete protein.)
