Spicy Greens and Garbanzo Soup

It’s soup season, y’all! Tis the season for taking out any repressed anger you may be carrying on chopping vegetables, ripping kale into shreds and throwing it all into a hot pot of onions and garlic.

There was lots of talk of age spots and droopy cheeks, but also of the coconut cream which one of her friends had brought to scoop onto berries (what I was most focused on). The recipe used was that of oh she glows. It’s a perfect dairy-less alternative to traditional whipped cream and is just subtly sweet.
