Healthy, warm soups don’t get much better than this Cauliflower Chickpea Soup.
Light in flavour but packed with healthy vegetables and legume goodness – this is one soup you won’t ever regret making! Cauliflower Chickpea Soup is definitely a must-try! Perfect to warm you up and satisfying, too.
We love that the pre-roasting of the vegetables allows all of the flavours to come out, and makes this a relatively hands-off meal. Also, this looks just like potato soup, so if you’ve got fussy eaters, just let them think that!
Preheat oven to 200 degrees and prepare a large baking sheet.
Toss the cauliflower florets, chickpeas, whole garlic gloves, cumin, red pepper flakes and dried thyme in 3 tbs of olive oil. Spread over the baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes, flipping/stirring at the 15-minute mark.
While this is roasting, heat the rest of the olive oil in a large, heavy-based pot on a medium heat. Add the potatoes and the salt and pepper and cook, stirring regularly.
To the pot, add the vegetable broth along with 1 cup of water. Bring to the boil and then turn the heat down to a simmer. Continue to simmer until potatoes are soft, 15-20 mins depending on how big your cubes are.
Take the pot off the heat and stir through the cauliflower mix. Puree the soup using a blender (in batches) or an immersion blender. Once pureed, put the soup back into the pot and stir through the cream.
This is super easy to make and serves 6 people. Don’t hesitate and prepare the ingredients now!
