Chickpea Tomato Soup

Soup, my favorite part of the meal especially when it is a soup as good as this one. I have to admit sometimes I am more inspired by what is just available at home rather than what I am craving to eat.

In our household we always have chickpeas, ready to whip out some hummos JUST in case we have visitors coming to lunch.You can’t have people over for lunch without Hummus. Not allowed.
With an abundance of hummus and some tomatoes lying around, I set out to make this soup 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 5 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cube vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried zaatar (thyme)
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk (organic if possible)
  • 3 cups water

Preparation: 

  1. Heat oil in a medium pot. Add the onion, garlic adding in paprika, salt and pepper, and cook until the onion is translucent. Add  balsamic vinegar and stir. Add the tomatoes  and thyme leaves. Stir, then add the chickpeas, coconut milk and water. Cover and gently simmer for 20 minutes
  2. Transfer to a blender and puree.
  3. Put back on heat for another 10 minutes to let it settle

  1. I absolutely love tomatoes and chickpeas, they have a permanent place in my pantry. I have bookmarked this recipe and will try it out soon! The picture look yummy too.

    Just a quick question, can you recommend any other substitutes to coconut milk ? I am not too fond of coconut milk.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Saloni

      Thanks for your comments 🙂 I could recommend using creme fraiche if you are not a vegan or possibly almond milk but please note that both these options could alter the taste
