Spinach and Chick Pea Soup is a light, broth soup made with fresh spinach, tomatoes, garlic and chick peas. Satisfying for lunch or dinner.
Not only does this Spinach and Chick Pea Soup contain a mere 6 ingredients; it can be ready in 30 minutes. I love broth based soups like this one; especially when they contain legumes. It makes for a hearty meal whether its for lunch or dinner.
How do you make Spinach and Chick Pea Soup?
For this recipe you'll need garlic, spinach, basil, tomatoes, chick peas and chicken broth, Add some of the chicken broth, garlic, basil, tomatoes and spinach to a large pot or Dutch oven; then sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Next, add the chick peas and remaining chicken broth. Using your immersion blender, pulse 4-5 times leaving some of the beans whole. Bring the soup up to a boil over high heat; then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
This Spinach and Chick Pea Soup was very flavorful. As an added bonus, it's also low in sugar, contains no saturated fats and is high in vitamins A, B6 and fiber.
It'a very filling soup, as is most recipes which contain legumes. If you'd like, sprinkle a little Pecorino Romano cheese on top; which tastes even better! ~Enjoy!

This looks like the perfect soup to have when you're short on time--but long on pantry staples! Do you start with the garlic, or add it at the end?
