ADD THIS CHICKPEA SOUP TO YOUR ARSENAL OF SIMPLE SOUP RECIPES
Slow cooker soups are the best. We love the luxury of mixing a bunch of simple pantry ingredients together, pressing a button – and then moving on with our day.
The flavors that come to the forefront when you cook slow-and-low tend to be fully developed – and super comforting (especially when making soups and stews).
Well, this garbanzo bean soup just happens to be one of our favorite chickpea recipes of all time…. And with good reason. It’s absolutely packed with home-style goodness!
You see chickpeas have a nutty flavor that melds so well with aromatics like onion and celery. Thyme adds an herbaceous note – and diced tomatoes introduce a bit of acidity and brightness to the mix.
It’s a soup so yummy that the whole family will be asking for seconds. And the only thing better than the savory and bright flavors is how easy it is to make from scratch!
