Watercress with Balsamic Beet-Roast Chickpeas and Parsley Crab

Yield: 4 servings

Calories: 238 per serving

Ingredients

For the Chickpeas

  • 1 cup beet juice 
  • 1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 14-oz. can of chickpeas, drained, rinsed and dried
  • Salt and pepper

For the Soup

  • ½ small leek, finely chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large zucchini (approximately 9 oz.), coarsely chopped 
  • ½ Tbs. olive oil 
  • 2¼ cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3½ oz. fresh white crabmeat
  • Few sprigs of parsley or tarragon, finely chopped
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 12 oz. watercress
  • 1½ cups unsweetened soy milk

Directions

To make the chickpeas, place the beet juice and balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, until the liquid has reduced to about ¼ cup and has a thick syrupy consistency.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the chickpeas in a small baking pan and pour over half of the syrup, mixing well. Season and roast for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, pour over the remaining syrup and roast for another 10 to 15 minutes, keeping an eye to make sure the syrup does not burn. When ready, set aside.

Sauté the leek, garlic, celery and zucchini in the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water for about 5 to 8 minutes. Add a splash more water if necessary. Pour in the stock, then the sun-dried tomatoes.

Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

Mix the crabmeat with the chopped parsley or tarragon, and then season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Refrigerate until needed.

Removed the sun-dried tomatoes then add the watercress and soy milk. Simmer for a couple of minutes to soften. Blend until smooth and season to taste. Serve, topped with a spoonful of crabmeat and a scattering of chickpeas
