This chickpea soup recipe with roasted avocado and charred lime is delicious. It’s the type of soup that makes you feel at home and pampered as soon as you try it.
The title for this soups is a bit long and fancy, but do not get distracted by it. This soup is hearty, delicious and very easy to prepare. You can make it with the roasted avocado and charred lime or just as is. I like to add the touch and smokiness of the roasted veggies because it gives it a bit more of a depth of flavor and takes this soup to the next level.
But the reality of things is that this soup is simple, nutritious and very hearty. When I was young I loved to come home to soups like this. I grew up in Mexico, and in my country lunch/dinner is served around 3:00 pm. So every time I got back home from school, lunch/dinner was already served.
When I was preparing this Chickpea soup I forgot to take pictures of the process or the ingredients, but the recipe is very easy to follow and it comes along without problems. This soup is perfect for rainy days, for cold days of days that you have like three minutes to eat. Here are other soup recipes that are as good as this one:
