Loved this recipe! Pretty much combined it with a similar good food recipe of the chorizo and chickpea soup. Chorizo and loads of Harissa paste made this soup a real treat! Definitely making again

Delicious! I left out the celery as I didn't have any and added a diced potato to bulk it out a little bit more, not that it needed it. I also added a couple of cloves of chopped garlic with the onion. Really tasty and the doesn't 'feel vegetarian', probably because of the hearty chickpeas. I found that it serves 4 for light lunch or a side, or 2-3 for a evening meal main course, but maybe that's just saying something about my appetite!

I add some red lentils to this to make it a bit more of a stew. It then makes a great tasty, healthy lunch to take to work.

I'm not a fan of lumpy soups. I also don't like celery unless its blitzed :) I blitzed all the ingredient apart from the chickpeas and broad beans. Added them after and then served as it was. It is delicious. I first made this as a starter for a dinner party it was a huge hit :D

Do you think this recipe would still work if I blended the ingredients to make a smooth soup? I'm not a fan of lumpy soups, but I like the sound of these ingredients. Has anyone ever done this before?
