Chickpea Tomato Soup
This chickpea tomato soup is so flavorful and perfect for a cold winter night. It pairs wonderfully with a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s a great meatless dish that’s loaded with fiber. I love hearty soups with legumes when it’s cold, more soups you may enjoy this Minestrone, and this 16 Bean Soup with Ham and Kale (so good!). You can see more Soup Recipes here!
This is the best tomato soup! The chickpeas and vegetables give it so much body and complexity.
Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are loaded with nutrients such as fiber, protein and vitamins so it’s also a nourishing meal. Leftovers freeze well so it’s also a great make-ahead meal and perfect to pack for lunch on the go. I adore chickpeas and have been making this soup a lot, especially now that chickpeas are 0 Smart Points on WW! My husband on the other hand isn’t a fan of their texture, but he loves the soup!
To Meal Prep:
Leftovers are great for meal prep. Divide the rest into containers. Keep covered and refrigerate up to 4 days. To reheat, microwave in 30-second intervals until heated through.
To Freeze: Freeze, covered for up to 3 months. To reheat, transfer to the refrigerator or reheat from frozen in 30-second intervals until heated through.
What to serve with Chickpea Tomato Soup

- A simple salad and a whole grain baguette.
- It pairs wonderfully with a grilled cheese sandwich.
