Quick and Easy Chickpea and Spinach Soup

I normally make soup in large batches in a huge pot because our regular large pot was no longer big enough to accommodate our soups. Yesterday I wanted some soup but didn’t want the ordeal of chopping and prepping a huge batch of soup that might not be desired by the rest of the family.

This is how this soup came about. A quick and easy soup that you can make in a pinch and doesn’t require lots of prep or ingredients.

Chickpea and Spinach Soup

2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 large onion, cubed
2 cloves of garlic
6 cups of water
2 no salt veggie bouillon cubes or no salt herb mix to taste
1 pkg (300gm) frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
juice of 1 lemon or hot sauce depending on your preference

Put the chickpeas, onion, garlic and water in the vitamix and blend until pureed. Place into a soup pot and cook until there is no longer a strong raw onion taste. Alternatively place all the ingredients in a soup pot and puree once the onion is cooked.

Add the spinach after the soup is nearly ready and simmer 15 minutes.

Stir in lemon juice or hot sauce and enjoy.
