"Tasty, good-for-you soup with a few variations to try! Either serve as it is, or puree half the solids and return to pot, or puree all the solids. Serve with parmesan. Or -- better yet -- top with garlic croutons scattered with parmesan." — LIZZIE-LIZZIE

1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 (15 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
chicken bouillon, crumbled
chopped fresh rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
I subbed fresh dill for the rosemary. This was quite good. I also simmered for quite awhile to soften everything up :)
I have to say three stars because although I used the basic recipe, I also added my own touches...I like to use less water, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 cups, I also added 28oz can crushed tomatoes instead of the diced, more garlic of course, and this goes really well with couscous, and chicken breast pieces fried separately in garlic...that way you can also make the meat eaters happy, and bump this up to a meal.
The soup was great but i decided to tweek it a little. I first sauted the oil, garlic, tomatoes,and chickpeas in a non-stick frying pan for 20 minutes to reduce the juices from the tomatoes. I then placed the tomatoes and chickpeas in the sauce pot and added the remaining ingredients. Finnally I added a little shredded roast chicken and i was in heaven.
So it is the new year and I gained too much weight over the holidays. Found this healthy, low cal soup and decided to give it a try. I loved it! Great taste for something so easy. I used chicken broth instead of water & bouillon and added 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper. Also threw in a little orzo. Even with the orzo, it was still very low cal. A great start to a new year.
I love it. I replaced the bullion cube with 2 tbs of Minors Vegetarian Consonmme Prep (chicken style) from soupbase.com. Great flavour and enjoiable hot or cold. I will add another can of tomatoes next time.
Definitely a base soup. I made it for myself, and then made it for a party. I added kidney beans, white beans, brown sugar (the tomatoes were a little bitter to me), and vegetarian stock instead of the water. I left the party with an empty pot. I suggest making the soup your own, its one of those kitchen sink recipes where you can add what you like.
Love this soup. I changed it a little. I pureed the tomatoes and chick peas. Instead of rosemary, I added a little ground cloves and ground red pepper. I added flax seed meal to the cup of soup just before eating to make it thicker (and to add fiber).
Very bland. I had to use 3 bouillon cubes instead of 3 to give it any flavor. Otherwise it was just like beans and tomatoes floating around in water. I will make it again, but with my changes.
