Mulligatawny Soup

1 - 1/2 pounds chicken, chopped into 1" pieces
1 T Earth Balance Buttery spread
1 T coconut oil
1 large onion, rough chopped
4 stalks celery, medium chopped
3-4 teaspoons curry
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 T rice flour
64 oz. gf chicken broth
2 medium sweet potatoes, medium chopped
2-3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
15-16 oz cooked garbanzo beans, rinsed if canned
14 oz coconut milk

In Dutch Oven melt "butter" and coconut oil over medium heat.  Do not allow to brown.  Cook chicken in butter/oil until browned.  Remove from pan and set aside.  Add onions and celery.  Cook until soft but do not allow to become brown.  Add the curry and the salt to taste.  Cook and allow the curry to create a gooey mess.  :)  :) Add flour and cook for about 2 minutes. This will remove the "floury" taste of the soup.  Add a little broth as needed to keep mixture from browning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.  Slowly add the remaining broth.  Add the chicken back into the soup.  Add sweet potatoes.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Turn down to a simmer so that the sweet potatoes cook to fork tender.  Add apples and garbanzo beans.  Cook until beans are warmed and apples are fork tender.  Add coconut milk.  Heat until warm.  Serve warm with a crusty bread.
