Hearty Chickpea Soup #SundaySupper

By: The Food Hunter

I'm excited to be taking part in my very first Sunday Supper Movement event. Sunday Supper is a group of bloggers on a mission to bring back Sunday Supper around the family table in every home. They often will partner with brands and services that are like minded and believe in the power of their mission.

This week the group is showcasing warming trends including: soups, stews, desserts and drinks. Nothing warms me up more than a steamy bowl of soup. Since I often eat soup as a main dish I like it to be hearty. Loaded with good for you chickpeas, this creamy soup fits the bill!



Hearty Chickpea Soup

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
crushed red pepper flakes
2 cans chickpeas, rinsed & drained
3 cups water
salt & pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic, rosemary and crushed red pepper.
Cook, until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add chickpeas and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

Using a hand blender, puree soup in pot. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
