Sweet & Spicy chickpea tomato soup

A tomato soup is such a classic… light, filling and so comforting. Health on a plate!

Tomatoes contain a lot of potassium, vitamin E and antioxidants (which keep us young!) and vitamin C (which is crucial when it comes to immunity). They are very low in calories and have a good influence on our digestive and nervous systems. There are no reasons not to love them!

Chickpea is a great source of protein and fibre. It also contains a lot of iron, magnesium and vitamin B6.

You think that a tomato soup is always the same? Naaah. With a little touch of herbs and spices you can play with its taste. Try this one with sweet and spicy paprika.

You will need:

  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can of cooked chickpeas
  • 1 onion
  • 1 teaspoon of mashed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • a pinch of sweet paprika
  • a pinch of spicy paprika
  • 1 cup of water
  • a pinch of coriander
  • a few slices of bread
  • a little bit of butter

soup

  1. Slice onions and stew them in a medium pan with olive oil, salt and pepper until they get soft.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for a little more – be careful and don’t burn it :)
  3. Add tomatoes, chickpeas and water.
  4. Use a blender to make a creamy soup. If the soup gets too thick for you, add more water.
  5. In the end, add the sweet and spicy paprika and cook for 5 more minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with some coriander.
  7. To accompany your soup, toast bread and put the butter on.

Eat well and be happy! :)
