Chickpea Soup Recipe

Comfort food at its finest : simple chickpea soup with added red lentils, potatoes and more. Adding another quickly made up soup to our healthy vegetarian/ vegan meals list.







To be honest, I never tried combining chickpeas with lentils, and I only used red lentils to thicken the soup. Tastes of grains worked out simply perfect. Spiced and seasoned with quite basic ingredients I always have in hand. And quick, delicious dinner was ready .
