Roasted Red Pepper Chickpea Soup

Updated: Mar 24, 2020

Soup is the only thing that keeps me going during months that take years. The only silver lining? This Roasted Red Pepper Chickpea Soup. You are welcome.

February marks the month in which winters seems never ending. Gone are the memories of summer, gone are the tan lines of Christmas holidays. It's wet. It's grey. And you've made a semi-permanent dent on the sofa from the past two months. It's not a pretty month. Don't even get me started on Valentines Day (unless you're bringing chocolate).

Cold weather means one thing: SOUP. Soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Soup all damn day. But not just any soup, I'm sick and tired of plain old chicken noodle or tomato soup. I want something hearty to get me through the never ending cold. I want it to be filling, full of protein, and tons of flavour. I want this to be my meal, because goddamnit I refuse to make anything else. Okay, actually I'm all about making soup all year round, no matter the weather. BUT this is extra delicious on a cold winters night.

That's why I made this soup. It ticks all the boxes. From Vegan, Gluten Free, hearty, plant protein, and full of flavour, thank goodness this exists. It gets its flavour from roasting the veg to bring out their natural sugars, along with a healthy dose of smoked paprika. I like to serve my soup with a hunk of crusty sourdough and an embarrassingly large amount of salted butter. Or be a responsible adult and serve with a green salad. Your choice. I won't judge.
