I really loved this. Substitutions: I used dried chickpeas that I cooked from scratch instead of canned, and I added more salt. The diced tomatoes were sodium free so I think it evened out. I also ground some Ecuadorian black pepper over this before serving to add extra kick, because I didn't find it very spicy.

Blue Chickpea November 03, 2008

A delicious, very quick and easy soup to prepare! And like all soup recipes, very adaptable. We don't like our food spicy, so I omitted the red pepper flakes, doubled the spinach and added some cumin. I also used a combination of chicken stock and white wine (about 50/50), simply because I'm always looking to sneak some wine in where I see the opportunity to do so - to add to the flavour. It was largely the spinach that drew me to this recipe, so that's why I doubled that - favourite - ingredient! Thanks KelBel, for a great recipe using readily on hand ingredients! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
