How to cook chickpea soup

  1. First, soak the chickpeas in a bowl of water for at least 10-12 hours to soak them (best done the day before preparation).
  2. Once the time has passed, drain and rinse them under cold running water and start preparing.
  3. Heat the vegetable broth and in the meantime put the onion, carrot and celery in a large saucepan to fry in extra virgin olive oil. Cut the vegetables into small cubes , so that they are not too big at the end of the preparation.
  4. Let's now move on to cooking the chickpeas: put them in the saucepan and leave them on the heat, then after a few minutes start pouring in the broth and bring them to the boil, it will take about 2 hours and add broth as needed (we recommend preparing at least 1 litre/1 liter and means of safety). If you use canned chickpeas, already cooked, however, 10-20 minutes will be enough.
  5. You can add a spoonful of tomato concentrate or a cup of puree (about 50-60 g) to give a touch of acidity to the soup.
  6. At this point, when the chickpea soup is almost ready, season with salt and pepper and leave it to cook for about ten minutes with the bay leaves and rosemary.
  7. Once ready, serve the chickpea soup with toasted bread. Enjoy your meal!
