Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the finely chopped garlic and onion then sauté 2-3 min until translucent, taking care not to let them burn.
  2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then add them to the saucepan. Stir in the spices, tomatoes, broth and water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cook 7-8 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender, then ladle it into bowls and serve.

This recipe was great! So easy and so quick! My 2 year old even liked it :) Next time I make it I will add more garlig though but thats just me I LOVE garlic. Also, the ingredient list calles for diced tomatoes but no where in the directions does it tell you what to do with them.

I liked this soup but found it quite bland. The next time I will spice it up using ideas from the `spicy lentil soup`recipe. This has potential.

I, too, noticed the tomato dilemma. My daughter and I are going to try it with 2 small tomatoes.
