Moroccan Chickpea Soup (Recipe)


✅ 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil plus more for garnish (Use Kasadrinos **FREE Bottle**)

✅ 1 onion chopped

✅ 6 garlic cloves minced

✅ 2 celery sticks finely chopped

✅ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

✅ 1 teaspoon ground cumin
✅ ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

✅ 1 teaspoon sweet paprika

✅ 1 can crushed tomatoes 14 oz cans

✅ 3 cans chickpeas 14 oz, drained and rinsed

✅ 4 cups 1 quart vegetable broth

✅ Salt + pepper to taste

✅ 7 oz baby spinach 200 g, about 2 handfuls


1️⃣ In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, minced garlic, and chopped celery and cook until onion becomes translucent (reduce heat if they start to brown).

2️⃣ Add spices (cinnamon, cumin, cayenne pepper and paprika) and cook for about one minute, stirring.

3️⃣ Add crushed tomatoes, chickpeas and broth (chickpeas should be just covered by the broth - if they're not covered, add just enough water to cover them). Stir to combine. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

4️⃣ Remove soup from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash some of the soup directly in the pot. Stir in spinach and let it cook through the heat of the soup for a couple of minutes until wilted. Adjusted salt and pepper if needed and serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
