    We love chickpeas so this recipe from Chef April Bloomfield of the Spotted Pig "gastro-pub" in Manhattan soon became one of our favorites.

      Easy to make and especially good with fresh rosemary from the garden. I also found the soup too thick for my liking and added extra broth to desired consistency. Cooked on LOW in a crock pot for several hours. A large spoonful of cooked brown rice was added (to make the soup more of a main dish) to each serving along with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of black pepper and a few fresh rosemary leaves. Thank you.

      I was torn on how to rate this. 3 for the texture and flavor, but with just a few adjustments a 5. I loved the overall flavors and the easy prepardness. I love chick peas so this was something I had to try. I added a bit more chicken broth, more lemon juice, more rosemary and some fresh ground black pepper. The base flavor was definitely there, but for me, being a bit thinner with more flavor was needed.

      I garnished it with some fresh parsley and grilled pita bread that had a Greek seasoning on it which was really good and easy. A lemon slice in the soup was also very good as the lemon flavor kept going through the soup when it was warm.

      Thanks for a very simple recipe, and it was really good, but for me, I just needed to adjust a few things to my liking. It was a very nice recipe.

      This was wonderful!! And so easy to make! I did add extra chicken broth from the advice of other reviewers. I ended up putting around 5 1/2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth, used a couple dashes of onion powder but other than that went with the recipe. The lemon juice, as others have said, was a very nice touch, and finishes off the recipe well. I really think this would make a great base soup to create other soups with. I think adding a small amount of grain and some veggies would make a very hearty lunch meal covering all your bases.
