Home made veggie soup with crispy chick peas,🥦

Hi everyone,

I love soups and here's one I made with cooked veg that I blended with a little gravy stock and coconut milk and I spiced it with coriander, cumin, ginger, turmeric and black pepper.

The chick peas I gently fry in olive oil until they are nice and crunchy, this is an amazing way to eat chick peas and you can add spices to the olive oil if they for a snack. Its gluten free and vegan.

And I had it with a home made gluten free roll.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend its lovely and sunny here now.😊

Hi Jerry,

I love soups too, and yours looks really good. I love the blend of spices you've used, and the coconut milk - lovely. Your homemade gluten free roll looks delicious too. I've not tried to make crunchy chick peas before, but they do sound yummy - I might give them a try, and I especially like the addition of spices there as well, I bet it gives them a great flavour.

Thanks Zest, I do like coconut milk in soup as well as my favourite spices, chickpeas fried are amazing especially if you add spices to the oil, you can buy amaranth and quinoa puffed and cooked like this as a healthy snack in some whole food shops. 😊

That looks delicious Jerry and what a fantastic idea with frying the chickpeas - I will have to try that - add them to my soups and also I can take them to work in a little pot as a snack.

Do you put the chickpeas in a bowl with a little oil and the spices? do you cook the chickpeas first?

Hi Debs, I cook the chickpeas separately in a small frying pan with a little olive oil and just gently fry them and add spices to the oil if I want the chickpeas spicy. These were tinned chickpeas so I just put them straight in the pan. Otherwise I'd have soaked them and cooked first.

The soup I made with left over cooked veg, including onion, garlic, broccoli, fennel and sweet potato, which I blended, added the stock and coconut milk and re heated in a saucepan. 😊
