- Chick pea soup
In a large saucepot, add a thread of olive oil and sweat the onions, bacon and thyme at low heat. Next, add the chickpeas and then season with salt and pepper. Deglaze with white wine and let reduce for a couple of minutes. Add the chicken stock and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. With a hand blender, blend the soup until it has a nice smooth texture.
With a laddle, pour the soup in the center of a bowl and garnish with a spoonful of sour cream, grated old cheddar and a bit of parsley.
If you are using instant chicken broth concentrate, be careful of the salt level. Always tase and adjust seasoning.
