Kale and Chickpea Soup with Lemon
A delicious, warm and filling soup, with a slight bite and a sharp edge. I don’t like using too many ingredients in a pureed vegetable soup as it muddies the flavour. I suppose you could swirl in a spoonful of creme fraiche or a little double cream but I don’t think it needs it. The blitzed chickpeas makes it quite creamy in any case. Any sort of white bean works here so you can substitute the chickpeas with cannellini, borlotti or butter beans if you prefer. This Kale and Chickpea Soup with Lemon is perfect to take to work in a flask or spill proof container to heat up in the microwave for lunch. Delicious, virtuous and thrifty!
