One of the most popular soups in the Holy Land is a unique blend of chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) and cilantro. It is prepared in large pots and cooked for several hours. My simple version of this exotic flavored soup is ready within 20 minutes!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small yellow onion, sliced (approx. 1 cup)
2 cans of chick peas, drained (15 or 15.5 oz. each)
2 pints fat free chicken broth
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves (no need to chop them)

1. Heat the olive oil on medium/high in a large saucepan with a lid. Add the onion and sautee for 3 minutes, stirring.

2. Add the drained chickpeas and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Uncover and add the cilantro. Cook for 2 more minutes and then remove from heat. Let it cool slightly and then totally blend until smooth, either in batches in the blender or with a potato masher. (Note: You'll get best results if you use a blender: either a regular blender or a hand-held immersion blender such as the "Braun Multiquick Hand Blender," so the cilantro is completely pureed with the onions and chickpeas in the soup. If you use a potato masher instead, I recommend finely dicing the onion and chopping the cilantro leaves as finely as you can prior to cooking. There is no need to chop the cilantro if using a blender.) Re-heat if necessary.

Tip: Eat a bowl of this soup 15 or 20 minutes prior to your main protein meal of the day. It helps you feel fuller and more satisfied for longer!

Thanks, little Mary (I can truthfully say that now). We will definitely try this one.

Mary, we are all looking for soup recipes that can be eaten as main entrees...so if you could please help us in this regard, I'm sure we would all appreciate very much your efforts.

God bless,

Roger Troy

hey everyone.....a few days ago, i tried mary's white bean soup and today i made the israeli chickpea soup.....this is SO delicious..you HAVE to try them both...if you don't,you don't know what you're missing(actually.i think i like the chickpea soup a little better because the flavor from the chick peas is just great)....i'm going to buy dried chick peas and make a big pot from scratch to get myself started on freezing for the summer..i like them both because they're like allowable cream soups...i didn't realize that by looking at the recipes.....meanwhile,(duh)i should have realized that this was the consistency when i read the different recipes for pureed beans on the tops of various casseroles...the closest i got to cream soups when i was a kid were avgolemono soups with chicken and with lamb......i'm going to buy dried white beans and do the same with the white soup...and THEN i'll go back to my classic mediterranean bean soups(for a while)...niki

Niki,

If you like this soup & the white bean soup because they have that thick & creamy flavor and texture, you MUST try one of my other soup recipes I posted a long time ago.  It's called "Chicken and Sweetcorn Chowder."  It is my husband's favorite out of all my new soup recipes, and he doesn't even realize there are beans in it (he thinks he doesn't like white beans, but he loves this soup!)

By the way, you are so right that if you want to save money and add maximum nutrition to bean soups, you can buy the beans dried and reconstitute them before cooking. 

Happy eating!

Mary

thanks for thinking of me mary...i checked that recipe...the only corn i like to eat is corn on the cob..i hadn't really thought about it before looking at.this recipe...and i can't wait for it to be in season right now on long island...i'm going to buy loads of it and freeze as much as i can....i'm just starting to see watermelon on sale also....and i saw how you wrote that your husband doesn't realize he's eating beans because they're pureed...i like when there are still small pieces in the soup...i meant to mention to you how perfect the braun hand mixer is for these soups..i've had one for years and it's great(NOW,i'll be using it a LOT more than before).....and now that youv'e mentioned putting stuff in these types of soups,i might try a little experimenting of my own...in the chickpea soup....maybe broccoli or cauliflower(i saw your recipe for faux mashed potatoes on the boards)and maybe some boneless chicken breast pieces.....haha...maybe i'll marinate the chicken breasts (in lemon juice,small amount of oil,onion,oregano,salt and pepper),forman grill it and THEN add it to that soup and simmer for awhile..............i like that idea....thanks for giving it to me.....i like to scroll through the boards for recipes.....i saw one of your really old ones for salmon wrapped in foil with a sprig of mint...this caught my eye because of the mint.....my father has it growing wild all over his property..the next time i go over there i'm going to bring some home and plant it..i did that once and planted it in a problem space that only seems to grow weeds and it died...this time i'm going to plant it in a different couple of spots so it'll start spreading...ahah...i'll put some near my grape vine....yes.........i grew greek oregano one year but then it didn't come back and i didn't buy any again....i'm going to buy some and plant it in that same spot near my grape vine..............thanks for the ideas...............niki

Hello Niki,

This message isn't really about the Chick Pea soup at all, it's a reply to your comment about the "Simmons Salmon."  The recipe with the salmon, mint & tomatoes is super-easy, and truly one of my very favorite dishes of all time.   How great that your dad has mint growing in his garden!  Somehow homegrown stuff always tastes better than the produce you buy in stores.

Hope you're having a good weekend,

Mary

and you know,mary,i used to put other types of fish in foil like that...but i used to put it on the barbeque and it used to be delicious...i'm going to try salmon and also maybe tilapia like that.......it's a delicious change from my more traditional preparation of fish....i made a pot of bean soup the other day and used black beans and red beans and they were a really good combo....i particularly like black beans because they bring a lot of flavor to the soup............and i simmered the beans for a few hours and the soup was great......for people making a bean soup their only source of protein on certain days,i highly recommend using dried beans and mixing the beans to improve the quality of the protein............niki

Holy moly, Mary.  I made this Israeli Chickpea Soup this evening and man is it ever good.  I had not been a fan of chickpeas before(i had them around for salads only).  I tried this and am a believer in them now.  Thanks for cranking this one out.  I could eat my weight in this stuff.  :-)
