I like this version. I threw in some carrots for DS and a few other veggies I had to use up. I didn't blend just because we like the broth in this dish. THank You Made for ZWT 7.

Excellent!! I halved the cinnamon and doubled the cumin, blended everything and served with bread.

Very good! But I had to add quite a lot of salt (just because I'm so used to salty soups :/

A solid hit at home, not quite a homerun with all, but one I can trot out again. Loved cooking the herbs with the broth - added such nice flavor to it. I did not have fresh parsley, threw in a bunch of dried, and then just strained it all. I used yellow lentils, and it looked so pretty with the red and yellow - I may not puree it at all next time. Used a bit less cinnamon, as I was not sure just how that would go over and it probably would have been ok as written. I love lentils, and this is yet another lovely way of using them.

I made this for the DM and myself for lunch with the idea of blending the left overs well we were enjoying it so much we polished of the lot and were chockas to say the least but very happily so. I just gave it a quick stab with the stick blender to smooth out some of the ingredients but left it mainly chunky and all the flavours justed played on one another and every mouthful was a pleasure to the senses, thank you Deantini, made for ZAAR Stars.

I really liked this more than I thought I would. I blended all of it because I wanted my kids to try it. I made a substitution based on what I had. Instead of regular canned tomatoes I used a can of tomatoes and peppers. It was too hot for us. I can't wait to make it again using regular tomatoes.

Wonderfool soup! I could not expect better chickpeas soup.
I did not use the blender as I love texture (see my photo!). Sooo delicious! Really a keeper!
I think the best chickpeas soup I ever tried!

Yum, but preferred without the additional cinnamon on top! DD (toddler) enjoyed this too. I liked the lemon slice garnish it added much more to the flavour and I would not leave it off. I used red lentils as well. I used Betty Crocker's Classic Chicken Broth, less chickpeas as I was using the rest of a 19 oz can, freshly squeezed lemon juice, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, plus the rest except the optional date garnish as I didn't have any on hand! Made for Went to the Market Tag Game - Winter 2010/11.

I loved this dish. The cilantro was just the perfect amount, especially set against the touch of sweet spice from the whole cinnamon stick. I can't think of a thing that would improve this dish. I'll definitely make this again, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Made for Zaar World Tour #6 for the Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens team.
