Creamy Garbanzo Soup or Sauce (vegan)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m still in my soft food phase, which hopefully will be ending soon. However, I’ve tweaked some old recipes to make them work. I really love this one, and I know it’ll become a regular staple even once I can chew.

This is the simplest, easiest, super-yummy comfort food soup you can go for. It feels all carby and soothing and smooth…and yet it’s got an amazingly robust flavor. And, of course, it has the protein that my body has been absolutely craving. I was sorely tempted to call it a bisque because it’s so rich and creamy, it’s definitely technically not a bisque (no seafood). I’ve also used a thicker version as pasta sauce for E or a veggie-dressing for me.

Also, as a bonus, this is totally a pantry soup–I’ve always got everything I need on hand.

Heat the olive oil, saute the garlic until golden and fragrant. Pour in the broth and garbanzos.

That’s it.

Simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until the beans are super soft and most of the fluid is absorbed. Puree or let the Vitamix do it’s magic, and add additional water to get the right thickness.

Garnish with herbs if desired.

I’ll be posting this to Wellness Weekends  Hop over for more yumminess!!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
