Vegetarian Mulligatawny  Soup:  There are endless variations of this soup!  Mulligatawny is a soup that originated in India & its name comes from the word “pepper water”.  This version does have a slight “kick”, but the other spices, lentils, rice & coconut milk soak of the heat and give this soup a great depth of flavor.  Ingredients: canola oil, garlic, onion, celery, carrots, lentils, chopped tomatoes, chick peas, veggie stock, tomato juice, yellow curry powder, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, coconut milk, honey, basmati rice.  Garnished w. fresh cilantro.  13. per quart & comes w. bread.  Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free
