Chickpea Soup (Recipe)


✅ 2 cans chickpeas, drained

✅ 1 can canned tomatoes, diced

✅ 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth

✅ 1 cup frozen spinach

✅ 1 cup celery, diced

✅ 1 cup onion, diced
✅ 1 cup carrots, diced

✅ 1 large garlic clove, minced or pressed

✅ 1 tsp paprika

✅ 1 tsp dried oregano

✅ 2-3 bay leaves (optional)

✅ 1/2 Tbsp flour (heaped)

✅ 1/2 tsp fine salt, plus more to taste

✅ 1/8 tsp black pepper, plus more to taste

✅ 1 lemon, juice (optional)


1️⃣ Warm the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the diced onion, carrot, and celery. Cook, stirring often, until the onion has softened and is turning translucent, about 5 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the garlic, paprika, oregano and bay leaves. Cook until fragrant while stirring frequently, about 1 minute.

3️⃣ Add the chickpeas, and cook for another minute, stirring often

4️⃣ Pour in the diced tomatoes, the frozen spinach, the broth and 1/2 tsp of salt. Raise the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, then cover the pot, reduce heat and cook gently for 10 minutes.

5️⃣ In the meanwhile, dissolve 1/2 heaped Tbsp of flour into 1/2 cup of cold water, mix to a smooth consistency and stir in the soup. Stir well and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove the pot from heat, then remove the bay leaves. Taste and season with more salt, pepper and lemon juice until the flavors really sing.

6️⃣ Divide into bowls, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and some chili flakes if you’d like.
