2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
1 small sweet potato, chopped into small, bite-sized pieces (peeled, if desired)
1 cup cooked, rinsed chickpeas
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Place a dry soup pot over medium heat. Add the curry paste and slowly stir it for about 2 minutes. Slowly stir in 2 cups water, making sure curry paste thoroughly incorporates with water. Add the sweet potato and chickpeas. Simmer soup for about 5 minutes, until sweet potatoes are al dente. Add the spinach immediately after removing soup from heat.

Makes 2 servings.
