Roasted Chickpea Soup (Vegan & Gluten free)

Beans are among the most versatile and commonly eaten foods throughout the world. These are the seeds from flowering plants and mainly classified as legumes. Usually all variety of beans grow in pods which are capsules with several beans inside. Some of the most popular bean varieties include kidney beans, garbanzo beans (chickpeas), lima beans, black beans, black-eyed peas, soybeans, red beans etc. Beans are a very good source of protein, vitamins and fiber. The amino acids present in the beans are the chemicals that combine to form protein.

Well, the 164th theme of the Foodie Monday Blog Hop team has been decided as ‘Beans Power’. That means we have to post a dish having bean as the main ingredient. So I have picked the chickpeas / garbanzo beans as the main ingredient and prepared a soup out of it as ‘Roasted Chickpea Soup‘.

Chickpeas are actually the most oldest & widely consumed bean in the world. Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans or kabuli chana. Whether these beans appear in a creamy hummus or a hot soup or even a spicy Indian curry, the chickpeas don’t help in weight gain as only loaded with protein, carbohydrates and fiber. So coming to the recipe, here I have used some roasted chickpeas, not the normal chickpeas. First some boiled chickpeas are roasted well in oven. And then those chickpeas are added to the soup which finally blended to get a smooth consistency in the soup. This thick soup is hearty enough to have as a main course along with a loaf of good bread. The soup is high in protein and completely gluten-free, vegan and even have a solid amount of protein and fiber.
