 Chickpeas and Spinach Soup

I just had the last of this delicious Chickpeas and Spinach Soup for lunch today. I will tell you this soup freezes well, so you can make a big batch and portion it out for a yummy soup anytime (just add the sour cream before serving). Pair it with a thick crusty bread or a salad and you are set.

Chickpeas and Spinach Soup sings on many healthy nodes, above all it is gluten-free and then spinach and low-sodium vegetable stock pack it with vegetable nutrition. At least 3 servings of recommend vegetable servings in one bowl for sure and the secret is my Homemade Vegetable Stock Recipe

Healthy Chickpeas and Spinach Soup in a bowl |

I often chop extra veggies or keep the small leftover raw veggie pieces in freezer to make stock. So whenever I am in kitchen making a veggie variety soup, side-by-side I also utilize my time in making 6-8 cups of vegetable stock. And then for next few weeks, whenever I want, I can make soups, stews and rice with homemade stock - less sodium, almost no fat and packed with at least 2 veggie servings per cup or cup and half.
