Carrot Chickpea Soup

One of the quickest meal you can make is soup.  What I enjoy about it is that even if you haven’t been grocery shopping all week, you can usually find a carrot somewhere in the fridge maybe even one that is less than pretty.  Although I tend to eat a lot of soups as a comfort meal during colder months, whenever I feel like eating a lighter lunch, this is often the way to go.

Carrot soups have always been one of the first recipes I automatically gravitate to when looking for an easy quick recipe that will last a few days.  Although there are so many recipes, one thing that often gets left out is the protein.  As usual, I looked through my cupboards to see what I could possibly add to make it delicious.

This is a recipe that was inspired by what was in my fridge with an extra dose of vitamine C to help fend off a cold that my son had cought.

It has a lot of flavors that are great immunatory boosters such as garlic, tumeric, ginger….obviously I did not shy away from adding these to the soup!!  Since I only added smaller quantities due to their strong aromas, it was just enough to complement the sweetness of the carrot and the nutty flavor of the chickpeas.

I actually had to do 2 recipes the same week since Sasha and I ate it all!!
