Ask anyone that knows their beans, especially vegans, just how nutritious and delicious chickpeas are, and they are low in fat! One cup contains 269 calories and a whopping 14.5 grams of protein with only 4 grams of fat. In addition, if you are looking to increase your fiber, chickpeas contain 12.5 grams along with 80.4 mg of calcium and nearly 80 mg of magnesium.

Chickpeas contain all nine essential amino acids which make them a complete protein, necessary building blocks that keep bodies functioning properly.

And, with the spinach, this soup is one of the healthiest in my repertoire and is also fantastic when you have a cold or flu.

ENJOY!

I am often asked how do I have the time to make soup when in reality, soup is one of the quickest meals to come together, especially if you use a pressure cooker.

This yummy soup went from raw ingredients to bowls in less than 40 minutes (I used a traditional pot on a cooktop) and the leftovers are almost as good as the first servings.

The key in this recipe is to use red lentils, green lentils just don’t seem to work as seamlessly with these ingredients. You can omit the potatoes, but they definitely add another tasty dimension to the finished dish.

ENJOY!

It is a cold day here in Southern California, a brisk 60 degrees! Time for soup. But, to be perfectly honest, every day is a great day for soup.

This comes together rather quickly 1 hour, tops, including cook time. Use your imagination for whatever you want to use as toppings….vegan sour cream, avocado, tortilla strips, fresh cilantro, or all of the above!

An extra added taste is a squeeze of fresh lime juice. YUM!

ENJOY!
