olive oil or extra virgin olive oil,
plus more for drizzling if you wish
large garlic cloves,
(or crushed red pepper, same thing)
(15 oz each)
low sodium vegetable broth
salt & black pepper, to taste
Drain only one of cans of chickpeas and pour the second one with its liquid into a blender. Purée until smooth.
Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium heat, add the garlic and sauté for about 45/60 seconds, or just until fragrant.
Add the puréed chickpeas, the second can of drained chickpeas, the potato, parprika, thyme, rosemary, chili flakes, and some freshly cracked pepper and give a good stir. Add broth and stir again.
Place a lid on the pot, turn the heat up to medium-high, and bring the soup to a boil. Then turn the heat down to medium low and allow it to simmer for 25 minutes, stir occasionally.
Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your liking (it depends mostly on the salt content of your broth, I added about ¼ tsp of salt).
Serve hot with freshly ground pepper, a drizzle of olive oil if you wish, and delicious crusty bread for dipping!
keep in the fridge, stored in an airtight container, for up to 3 days.
divide among airtight containers (leaving 1-inch space at the top), and freeze up to 2 months
