Chickpea Soup Recipe

A soup that's suitable for both winter and summer. It's very tasty and filling, ideal for those on a diet.

The streaky bacon aside, this is a very healthy soup because of the benefits of chickpeas. They contain a large amount of very good dietary fibre and trace elements. Of course, that's all irrelevant if they don't taste good. But our chickpea soup has masses of flavour and we guarantee that you'll make this soup more than once.

COOK'S NOTES FOR CHICKPEA SOUP

We list canned chickpeas in our recipe because it's so convenient. It is possible however to buy dried chickpeas in packets. These are equally suitable for this recipe but typically they will require soaking in water for eight hours or more. All very well if you can plan ahead but not so good if you make meal decisions just before cooking.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Add the olive oil to a frying pan (skillet) on medium heat then add the bacon and onions. Fry for about 12 minutes until the onions have softened and the bacon is cooked. Turn the ingredients every couple of minutes to cook them evenly. Transfer the onions and bacon to a large pan.

Add all the remaining ingredients except the balsamic vinegar and let the soup simmer for 25 minutes.

 Frying onions and bacon

STEP 2

Put half the soup in a food processor and blend for one minute. Return the blended soup to the frying pan, stir in the balsamic vinegar and simmer for 2 minutes to fully re-heat the soup.

Taste the soup and add salt and pepper to your taste. Serve the chickpea soup into warm bowls accompanied by chunky bread.
