I made this last week after a fun day at the Orpheum Children's Museum with Gita and her girls. We all rode the bus downtown and played at the museum. We parted ways because I ran some errands (mailed a package to a customer), but we ironically ended up at Aroma with Gita and her twins after we were done. We all walked home together through the snow (come on people, shovel your sidewalks already!). I don't know Gita was able to walk with one child asleep on her back and another asleep in her arms. I only had Josie on my back and every once in a while Dema asked me to carry him. We ate a bunch of hummus at Aroma, but I still wanted to make this Hummus Soup I'd seen on Yeah, That Vegan Shit. Rob was crazy and biked 5 miles in the cold to play indoor soccer so the kids and I enjoyed the Hummus Soup without him. I served it with whole wheat pita bread (and a couple of drops of hot sauce) and mangoes. Everyone loved it! I think all the garlic we consumed that day has kept us healthy while many people around us have fallen prey to the dreaded cold/flu season. This is a great soup to keep everyone well.
