Leek, Potato and Chick Pea Soup

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

photo 1 I love soup, anytime of year! I especially love chunky soups that are a meal in itself! This Leek, Potato and Chick Pea soup is one of my favourites!  The chick peas provide the protein and it is full of yummy leeks, onions and potatoes! I prefer to blend some of it so its not so chunky. I personally use chick peas that I have soaked and cooked myself. I keep them in containers in the freezer and just take them out when I need them. I never buy canned beans because of the Bisphenol A (BPA) found in cans.

Leek, Potato and Chick Pea Soup This is a great meatless meal! If you’d like other meatless ideas you can check out my Mediterranean Green Lentil Stew, my Black Bean, Tomato and Rice Skillet, my Kale and Chick Pea Stew or my Swiss Chard Tortillas!
