Today we've been busy decorating our lounge and we needed something quick and nourishing for lunch. Jenna quickly threw this soup together in literally 5 minutes and it was delicious so I thought I'd post the recipe.
This soup ticks a lot of boxes for me, its simple, nutritious and tastes great!
You get fibre, protein and vitamins from the chickpeas, a good dose of antioxidants from the tomatoes, and your good gut bacteria will be very happy with the fibre from the red onions.
This soup also packs a real punch flavour wise from the sun dried tomatoes, paprika and balsamic vinegar.
I finished mine with seaweed flakes to add more minerals but Chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or fresh basil or parsley would also be a great addition.
It's also so much fun creating a nice pattern with some soya or oat cream!
It never ceases to amaze me how delicious and healthy a soup can be made from a few store cupboard ingredients!
I hope you give this one a go!
1 tin tomatoes
1 tin chickpeas
1 red onion, chopped
1heaped teaspoon paprika
2 garlic cloves, chopped or crushed
1 litre vegetable stock
4 sun dried tomatoes, chopped or 1 tablespoon red pesto
Splash of balsamic vinegar ( optional)
