Great recipe - we loved this soup and I'm definitely going to make it again. I used raw chickpeas that I soaked overnight and cooked. And I used dried rosemary instead of fresh.
Its quick and tastes great. The toddler loved it, her older siblngs were fussier but had a go. I really enjoyed this soup. Great way to use chickpeas.
Like tomato soup with a twist, and just as comforting. Mildly flavored, but good. Thanks for the recipe!~
