    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    This recipe was found in The Vegetarian Passport Cookbook. In Spain, this soup is only made when the chickpeas are in season and fresh. The rest of us, unless we know of a place to get fresh chickpeas, will have to use dried or canned.

      Very easy and quite tasty. I also skipped the sauteeing and just simmered the vegies with the broth until soft, and then add canned chickpeas and cooked until heated, then pureed. The lemon is a nice touch. I sprinkled a little ground cumin on top when serving. I think I will add some cumin while cooking next time, also, for added flavor. Made for tag game at

      Really delicious soup. I love chickpeas and knew that this was going to be a winner as soon as I read it. I added a tiny bit of garlic powder (about 1/16 tsp), skipped the butter and sauteing by just simmering the onion and carrot in the broth for about 10 mins before adding the chickpeas. The lemon is lovely. This is an easy to make soup that I'll be enjoying year round. :D
