Author: Kimberly Lord Stewart


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, cored and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala spice blend
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 garnet sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 yellow sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 32 ounces chicken stock, divided
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar tikka masala sauce (try Kroger Private Selection)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
  • ½ small cauliflower, stems removed, cut into small florets
  • ½ roasted chicken, meat pulled off the bone
  • Salt and pepper, as desired
  • Greek yogurt for garnish


  • Heat oil over low heat in a large soup pot. Add onions and peppers; sauté 15–20 minutes, until soft.
  • Turn up heat to medium, add garam masala, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger. Stir, and sauté for 1 minute. Add sweet potatoes, tomatoes and half of the chicken stock. Fill tomato can halfway with water, swish to remove tomato clinging to the can, and add to the pot.
  • Bring to a simmer, and cook on low for 30 minutes, until sweet potatoes are soft.
  • Add tikka masala sauce, garbanzos, remaining chicken stock, cauliflower and roasted chicken. Bring back to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes, until cauliflower is cooked. Season with salt and pepper; serve with a dollop of yogurt for each bowl.
