Store-Bought Spotlight: Moroccan Chickpea Bisque



Every once I’ll pass by the minuscule section of Meijer that has interesting vegan soups, power bars, etc. and have something jump out at me. On one recent day, it was this box of Imagine Bistro‘s Organic Moroccan Chickpea Bisque.

The first time I had it, I ate it plain and it was good. I wanted it to be thicker for some reason (I have no idea), but it was really flavorful. Loaded with veggies, cumin, chipotle peppers and many more spices it was a little exotic (for lack of a better word) and I really liked it.

When I went back for round two a couple of days later, I noticed the box’s suggestion to add raw chopped onion, lemon juice, a bit of olive oil and fresh cilantro to kick it up a notch. I didn’t have any cilantro on hand, but added the others (though it seems red onion is preferred if the photo on the box is any indication and I only had white). This changed the flavor of the soup quite a bit but was really, really good. (I had horrible onion breath afterward though!)

I think this soup would make a great base for an even heartier chunky soup you could make at home with it. According to its Web site, the company makes all kinds of soups and broths, including Cuban black bean, chipotle corn bisque and creamy butternut squash. I can’t wait to try more of them!

You can check out all of the nutritional info for the soup here.

  5. Self-mutilation has been a problem that has existed for a long time.
    If a rough estimation is made, it would be
    discovered that Nasarawa State can make at least modest revenue of forty thousand naira
    (N 40,000), daily as royalties and fourteen million, six
    hundred thousand naira per annum. But if when you finally get to check his phone (when he’s in the shower is your best
    bet) if the call history and all of the texts are always erased, then you have reason to be nervous.

  8. The vaporizers these days are highly efficient and very effective in providing the
    best of the results at the end of the day. This specific characteristic allows it to lighten the heaviness of strong flavored foods such as blue cheese.
