- General preparation
Rinse the chickpeas under cold water. Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry it in a small skillet until crisp. Chop the onion. Chop the parsley. Chop the thyme leaves. Make aged cheddar shavings.
- For the soup
In a large saucepan, use the bacon fat to sauté onion and fresh thyme. Then add the chickpeas, salt and pepper. Deglaze with white wine and let reduce for a few minutes. Add chicken broth and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Using a hand mixer, mix the soup until very smooth.
- To serve
In a bowl, pour your soup, and garnish with a spoon of sour cream, aged cheddar shavings, crispy bacon and a little bit of chopped parsley.
Using canned chickpeas saves a lot of time, but you can also use dried beans, rehydrate them overnight and cook them for about 2 hours in the chicken broth.
