The World in Your Soup Curried Chickpea Soup

First of all let me say I’d never had pureed chick pea soup until this one. My friend Rose made this soup and I call it The World in Your Soup Curried Chick Pea Soup. Why? Because when I saw the recipe, it had a little bit of something from all corners of the world! Curry powder from India, coconut milk that I associate with Thailand and Malaysia and South East Asia, chickpeas that I associate with the Mediterranean regions, peppitas from South America & Spain, and  even Maple Syrup from North America! Seriously, have you ever had a soup that had a little flavoring from all corners of the world?  Here is the recipe.
