thumbnail1And now for a budget-friendly soup…

Some folks said they’d use fresh basil instead of the cilantro. Or only use the cilantro as a garnish.

Mouth watering and full of fresh flavors, this soup, with soft chunky tomatoes and healthy chickpeas, will be an instant winner with the family.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (14 oz) can cooked chickpeas or 1-1/2 cups home cooked chickpeas
  • 3 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 can (14oz) diced tomatoes with juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • salt and fresh ground pepper

SoupIn a large pot over medium heat, cook onion until soften. Add garlic, chickpeas, water, cooked rice, tomatoes, paste, and dried parsley. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add in chopped cilantro, season with salt & fresh pepper to taste. Remove from heat, let stand for about 7 to 10 minutes to blend the flavors. Soup will thicken up, too. You’re ready to eat! Tastes wonderful with fresh baked bread on the side.
