20-Minute Chickpea Soup Recipe

To be honest with you, I haven’t left the house in a while (what else is new?), so I don’t need any warming up right now. I’m doing pretty good, wearing my 10 layers of clothing that resemble Santa’s gift sack. But in grey and no presents inside.

Why do I always say I don’t want to eat the recipes I made right now…Is that called self-sabotage? Like it’s great for my past and future self, but present self? No thanks, I’ll have coffee with a dash of acid reflux. Maybe it’s also because it’s 9 am right now. Only the universe and Neptune know.

In case you want to join future me in making this tasty plant-based soup, I’m sharing the recipe right now.

How To Make Chickpea Soup In 20 Minutes

Chop the onion, grate tomato and the red pepper. Then freshen up your fingers by mincing some garlic.

Add all to a heated cooking pot with olive oil, mint and cumin and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Go back in time and rinse and drain the chickpeas. Then, add them in and saute for 2 more minutes. Add water, a good amount of salt and cover with a lid. Cook at medium for around 8‐10 minutes. You can also use stock instead of the salty water.

Add in the spinach, taste and add salt or water if needed.

Blend ½ the soup using a hand blender and stir. Cook for 2 more minutes and remove from the stove.

Serve immediately and enjoy with some avocado, bread and jalapeno slices.
