Mixed Veg N Chickpeas Clear Soup

For Day 4 of BM # 16, I am going to share a very healthy n yummy soup with my Star Ingredient "Chickpeas" along with mixed vegs like carrot,beans n sweet corn. Running 4th day of Blogging Marathon under the theme "Pick one Cook All" with Healthy n light Soup. This soup recipe was adapted from Priya's Blog. I am a big fan of Her easy n healthy soups n this Broccoli Chickpeas Clear Soup is one of my fav recipe n bookmarked it long back. I am not much fond of soups and also so lazy to make it but i love the Instant Maggi/Knorr soups. This chickpeas clear soup is one of the easiest n simple recipe, Instead Broccoli i added mixed vegs of my choice n it turned out so good n filling. Even my 3yr old enjoyed sipping the soup. I love to much the croutons dipped in hot soup...Mmmm!! Thank you so much Priya for this healthy n tasty soup. The recipe as follows...

  1. Chickpeas     3/4 cup
  2. Mixed Vegetables     1/2 cup (carrot,beans-finely chopped n sweetcorn kernels)
  3. Onion    1 medium(finely chopped)
  4. Cumin Powder    1/2 tsp
  5. Pepper powder   1/4 tsp or to taste
  6. Dry Oregano     1/2 tsp
  7. Veg Stock     2 cups
  8. Water   1 cup
  9. Salt     to taste
  10. Olive Oil   1 tsp

  • If using dry chickpeas, soak overnight n pressure cook to 1-2 whistle n keep aside until use. Do not drian the water, i add it to the soup along with the cooked chickpeas water.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet,add chopped onions and saute until the onions turns translucent.
  • Then add the finely chopped mixed vegetables (carrot,beans n sweet corn kernels) and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • After that add the vegetable stock,water,salt and cook few minutesand then add pepper powder, cumin powder and cooked chickpeas stir well and cook for few minutes
  • Lastly add dry oregano stir well, simmer for few seconds and turn off the stove.
  • That's it..Healthy n Tasty Mixed Veg n Chickpeas Clear Soup ready.

You can also use canned chickpeas, drain n wash completely before use.
Do not omit dry Oregano, since the entire taste n flavor increases only after adding it.
Instead mixed veg, you can also use broccoli,mushroom n also instead chickpeas can use black eye peas,beans or any desired vegs n legumes.
