It’s full blown soup weather and I love it!

To be perfectly honest? There ain’t no soup weather around here. I’m kinda sunbathing in paradise, and YOU are over there, freezing your fingers off. Nah.nah.nah.nah.nah! Ugh. So childish of me.  😉

So HEY, you guys! Happy Sunday! How’s it going?  We’re doing pretty darn good out here on the BEACH, but I’m not going to rub that in your face. I got manners. What I AM gonna do is jump straight to this soup and tell you all the darn good things about it.

Every year around this time I start to lose my mind over soup and have about twenty, or more, on my to-make list. This coming week, as soon as we return from vacation, I’m thinking a bowl of Lasagna Soup will totally take care of my post-vacay depression.

HOW TO MAKE A CHICKPEA VEGETABLE SOUP

Last week I wanted to empty out the pantry and the fridge, and take care some of those few carrots and celery stalks left in the crisper drawers. Since vegetables alone in a soup is a bit bo-ring, I continued my search for lonely protein. In peaking through my 1,256 cans of everything, I reached for the Garbanzo Beans (A.K.A. Chickpeas) and finally, after about 1.6 years of their life spent in my pantry, I took care of them, too.

Looky here, though. There’s nothing fancy about this soup. I get it. Nothing fancy at all. Just an extremely flavorful, high protein, high fiber, low cholesterol, low sodium soup, all found inside this lovely pot.

Should you make this soup and slurp it up while sitting around in your cozy jammies tomorrow or the next day? Let’s just say I feel really good when I think about you doing that and me continuing to slurp on this Long Island Iced Tea inside of a big, blue, pool.  Check ya later! mwah!

ENJOY!

    1. Hi!
      Yes, it does. Let it cool thoroughly and freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
      Also, if I can just suggest one thing; what works best for freezing veggie soups is if you undercook the vegetables just a bit, they’ll have better texture when defrosted.

    Hi! This looks delicious and just what I need after our snow blizzard. Curious, would this soup freeze well? Would be great to have on hand to reheat whenever needed. Thanks!

  2. I only recently discovered that I LOVE chickpeas that everything you can do with them. I am a huge veggie soup person, but I’m often still hungry afterwards. This protein addition would solve that in a jif!
