Chickpea and Bean Soup for #SundaySupper

It’s my favorite day of the week! Not only am I hosting this fabulous Sunday Supper event but I’m also bringing you one of my new favorite recipes. This Chickpea and Bean Soup not only offers you a rich and hearty full feeling but it is loaded with beans and assorted veggies! This soup came to me in a magazine I was flipping through one day. I saw a picture of chickpea soup and it looked amazing, I didn’t have all of the ingredients but I knew I wanted to make something with beans in it. I didn’t know what flavors to combine, I had fresh rosemary and parsley so I figured why not just go with it. Aren’t those the recipes that we end up loving the most?

I recall my father making baked beans when I was child, an old family recipe of my grandmothers. I specifically remember the smell that would fill up our home. Nope It was not a smell that I liked. I actually hated it. It made my stomach turn so I never took a liking to beans. You should see my pantry now! I have gained an appreciation for beans since learning to eat healthier and every time I make a chili I make it a different way using different kinds of beans.

This Chickpea and Bean Soup is hearty and full of flavor! Don't like white beans, change it up and add kidney or even black beans. This soup is a meal in itself!

Serves: 4-6
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 small sweet potato, chopped

  2. Bean soup was one of my dad’s specialties, too! But he was always watching his sodium, so, needless to say, it was a little lacking! Yours looks outstanding. Thanks for hosting this fun event, Tammi!!!

  3. What a homey and comforting soup! Thanks so much for hosting this week… what a fun theme 🙂
