INGREDIENTS FOR MOROCCAN CHICKPEA TOMATO SOUP

ONION –  I prefer yellow onion, as it has mild flavor as compared to red onion. 

GARLIC – adds a ton of flavor to the soup. Fresh garlic or garlic powder, both work fine.

GINGER – hot and zesty, peppery ginger, adds spiciness and warmth to the soup

CELERY (optional) – adds a nice texture to the soup.

CARROTS – carrots add an extra flavor to this soup

CHICKPEA – I am using canned chickpeas for this recipe.

DICED TOMATOES – fresh or canned tomatoes

TOMATO PASTE – adds a nice thick texture to the soup, without any added thickening agent.

BROTH – low sodium broth adds an additional layer of flavor. Low sodium broth helps control the sodium intake. You can also use a bouillon, mix it with water as per package instructions and use it.

HERBS (optional) – I like to use bay leaf to add some more depth and flavor to this soup. 

SPICES – ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, ground cinnamon, cayenne pepper, paprika, gives a nice balance of flavors to the soup.

SPINACH – leafy green vegetable makes it so much nutritious. You can add kale, spinach or any other leafy vegetable of your choice. Cook the greens accordingly, as some take little longer to cook than others.

CILANTRO – adds a nice refreshing flavor and color to the soup

LEMON – fresh lemon juice gives soup a nice tangy flavor. Add as per taste.

FAQ ABOUT MOROCCAN CHICKPEA TOMATO SOUP

WHAT TO SERVE WITH SOUP

You can serve some crusty bread, drizzle with some olive oil. I like to toast my bread in a skillet, drizzle some olive oil and have it as a dipping for the soup. It tastes amazing.

Sometimes I also like to serve some plain quinoa, along with it. Makes a great accompaniment.

VARIATIONS TO THIS SOUP

Spices make a whole lot of difference in the outcome of this soup. One of the main ingredient is the cinnamon. Cinnamon adds a nice sweet flavor to this soup, which is one of the spices used in Mediterranean Cuisine.

I sometimes add garam masala instead of cinnamon for an Indian flavored Chickpea soup. Garam masala is a blend of whole spices, dry roasted and made into powder foam. The warmth of this spice adds such a depth of flavors into this Chickpea soup. Do give it a try and let me know how you like this Indian style Chickpea soup.

This soup recipe is quite versatile. You can adjust the consistency of this soup by adding broth as per your liking. Reduce the amount of broth for more thicker consistency. For more soupy consistency, simply add some more broth.

This recipe can be also be used to make a Moroccan Chickpea Stew. Simple reduce the amount of broth to around 2 cups. Also, I like to add some potatoes to my stew. You can adjust the consistency as per your liking by adding more or less broth. Once the soup is cooked, mash few chickpeas using a handheld blender or potato masher, for more thicker stew like consistency.

HOW TO STORE SOUP

Soup stay good for 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Once at room temperature, store it in an airtight container.

Soup can be frozen for couple of months. Divide it into smaller portions, and store it into freezer safe containers. Defrost overnight in fridge, or in a microwave. Reheat and serve.
