Smoked Tofu Croutons (recipe, this page):


In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and carrot, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, tomato paste, cumin, turmeric, coriander and cinnamon; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add tomatoes, breaking up with wooden spoon.

Pour in broth; bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer until carrot is tender, about 10 minutes; stir in chickpeas and kale. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is wilted, about 3 minutes.

Divide hot soup among bowls. Drizzle with lemon juice; top with Smoked Tofu Croutons; sprinkle with cilantro.
