Coconut Chickpea Soup

Coconut Chickpea Soup Recipe[yields]

I recently ordered a delicious chick pea soup at a favorite restaurant. Chickpea soup. How come I’d never thought of that?! (Have you?)

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are  extremely versatile and a great staple to keep around the house. Nutritionally speaking, these little beans are a powerhouse. Tons of cholesterol-lowering fiber, lots of iron for energy, a great blood-sugar stabilizer, manganese for antioxidants and, when combined with a grain like brown rice, a virtually fat-free complete protein on par with meat (reduce meat consumption and do good by your body, your wallet and the planet!). This soup is rich and silky. Pure luxury.
