Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter or olive oil over medium heat and saute garlic, onions and carrot until translucent; add pepper, herbs and tomatoes and bring to boil (note: I puree my tomatoes in the blender, but you can use them whole and break them up as they cook for more texture); reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, breaking up tomatoes as they cook; mix in chickpeas and broth; taste and adjust seasoning; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes to blend flavours; add more broth or water to thin, if necessary; serve with a sprinkle of dried, crumbled basil.

This was such yummy soup, and so easy. I love chickpeas and I love tomatoes, and the herbs just add that extra bit. I also gave it an extra bit-some Tabasco.

Lovely and easy soup! I only used 2 ts of butter to cut down calories (and Points!) and while I do realize it will also affect the taste, I think it worked fine. I also added a bit of chili sauce for a bit of heat! This will definitely become a lunch staple for me. Thanks for sharing Evelyn! :-)

Thanks for a fast, easy, delicious soup w/ two of my favorite things-tomatoes & garbanzos! Used fresh Lemon Boy yellow tomatoes from my garden, which I had already grilled whole on the barbeque along with peppers for another recipe. Lovely to eat and to present at table. Thanks, I'll be making this often!
