This Tomato Chickpea Soup is made using canned tomatoes and chickpeas along with a few other pantry staples and just 3 fresh ingredients. It’s easy to whip up, requires simple ingredients and is budget friendly.
Onions, garlic and celery are sautéed until they are soft, along with some smoky paprika, thyme, salt and pepper. I like the flavour you get from the smoky paprika, but if you only have regular paprika that’ll work as well. Likewise, with the thyme – any dried herb will work. Next, your canned tomatoes, chickpeas, some tomato paste for added flavour and water are added. It simmers till everything is soft and then blended. I use a stick blender – making it a one pot soup and there’s less to clean up afterwards. If you want a chunky soup, only half blend it. Otherwise, blend it until it’s completely smooth.
