Now that our daughter Olivia is home from university in Toronto for the summer, the vegetarian cooking around here is on the upward swing and this Chickpea Soup is the latest new dish out of our kitchen. It is so quick and easy to prepare and a few simple ingredients is all that’s required.

Spouse is now making more vegetarian soups than ever before, and although I don’t think she will ever join Olivia in the vegetarian ranks, there’s certainly a lot to be said for the occasional vegetarian meal. This soup fits the bill as a light lunch tor as the starter course for a larger meal.

Soup is something that is made 2 or three times a week in this house and generally always in relatively small batches. A batch of soup for us these days is certainly nowhere near the size of the enormous stock pots full of bubbling broth, meat and vegetables that many Newfoundlanders knew growing up.

These days small batches and plenty of delicious variety in or soups is what keeps the family interested in this lunchtime staple. There certainly are plenty of recipes on this blog to prove that, including our most popular Pea Soup with Dough Boys, a perennial Newfoundland favourite.

As always at our house, any leftovers get frozen in small individual serving size containers for a quick lunch any day of the week. This makes it ideal for pulling as many from the freezer as you need at a single time and virtually eliminates any wastage.

    Hi! Do you use dry green lentils or canned ones? Do you soak them before cooking? Thank you!

    Delicious! The 4 Bay leaves and the tbsp of oregano concerned me - it smelled very herbal when cooking and I thought it might be too much but the balance was really good when it was all done.

    Do you add DRIED lentils? Not sure if I have to soak them for a time before adding to this soup.

    What would the sodium count be if I used my unseasoned frozen tomatoes, Campbell's no added salt vegetable broth and unseasoned chickpeas cooked from dried. I have just had heart surgery and am limited to less than 2000 MG sodium total per day.

    I do not provide that sort of information. You will . have to calculate it yourself from the specific ingredients you use.
