Yum! This Chickpea Tomato Soup is cheap, easy to make and full of flavour.
It’s a great budget meal – made with ingredients that most people would already have in the cupboard – a couple of tins of tomato and a tin of chickpeas, some onions, garlic and a few other things! If you’re lucky you might also have the herbs growing in your garden.
This has a little kick to it because of the chillies. But if you don’t like spice, then don’t put them in. If you do like spice… you know what to do! 😉
When you drain the chickpeas – keep the brine! You can make all sorts of awesome things with it – including our Cajun Spiced Tofu, Vegan Fish Fingers, and Coconut Raspberry Slice! Did you know that chickpeas help to control blood sugar levels and can aid weight loss? I didn’t! Read more about the benefits of chickpeas here.
