Chickpea soup on a rainy day

Chickpea is a versatile protein ingredient used in many recipes like hummus. I also add it to homemade mayonnaise, we use it for a spread on bread and potatoes.

Making this soup was easy and it was a great meal.

Dollas approved: 5/5 we all loved it.

I made this soup again and added chopped spinach instead of the potatoes. This also turned out great.

Happy cooking, dolla.
