Chickpea soup

Chickpeas appear for the second time on this blog this week. I have the recipe written and photographed from the summer, as he waited until now, he could wait but I see every day how few people know what chickpeas are and what they are used for. If you click on the link to Wikipedia, you will learn more about chickpeas than I could tell you in this article. I will insist on use. We started to get closer to chickpeas due to the hummus but we must not neglect the other options. One of them is soup. Cream soup, to be exact.

A big carrot, a potato, a small celery, a lemon, a little cumin, a little, very little salt, chickpeas. I use ready-cooked chickpeas, so I take care of the amount of salt I put in the soup.

I put all the vegetables to boil (washed and cleaned, of course) and after I find that they are cooked, I put the chickpeas and let them boil together.

I put the spices (lightly fried cumin, without oil, then crushed in a mortar) and work the soup with the blender.

I add dill or not, I add or not green basil or parsley, but a few drops of lemon juice are required, they fit perfectly in chickpea soup.

That's it. Stay healthy. And know that this soup is better in winter than in summer, it is very filling.
