Smoky Sausage, Tomato and Chick-Pea Soup


1 pound fresh turkey sausage

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 onion, chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

2 Jalapeno peppers, sliced thinly or chopped

1 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

19 ounces can tomatoes or chopped tomatoes

19 ounces can chick-peas

3 cups chicken stock

Remove casings from sausage; cut into slices or break into chunks. In large pot, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausage, without stirring, for 5 minutes. Add onion, garlic, carrot, and celery; cook, stirring often for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are softened and sausage is cooked through. Skim off any excess fat. Stir in jalapeno peppers, cumin, ground coriander, paprika, chili powder and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Pour in tomatoes (breaking up with a spoon if using whole tomatoes). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, drain and rinse chick-peas; stir into pot along with stock and 2 Tbsp (25 ml) of the fresh coriander. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
