Method:

  1. Heat up some oil in a pot and stir fry the onions until they’re translucent.
  2. Add in the minced garlic and continue frying until the garlic turns golden brown.
  3. Add in all the vegetables and give it a light stir before adding the stock. If your pot is broad, you may need to add in a bit more stock till the vegetables are covered with stock by almost twice the height.
  4. Boil until the vegetables and chickpeas are soft and the liquid has reduced till it covers the vegetables by about 1 cm.
  5. Add the vegetables and stock ladle by ladle into a food processor or blender. Blend till smooth.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve with toast or croutons. If you want it be a bit indulgent, sprinkle some grated sharp cheddar cheese and a dollop of cream just before serving.

This soup is great for vegetarians and vegans as you can opt not to add in the cheese and cream. It is a great way to sneak in some vegetables into your children’s diet too!
