New Year Leek&Chickpea Cream Soup

396B0472The ride number 2013 has come to its end, and I don’t know how about you, but I want my 2014 one to be as healthy as possible, because if you are healthy, all the rest you need is just few steps away. To attract more health into our lives in this year, it would be great and symbolic to prepare something tasty and healthy, so our bellies get used to it and they will always remind us of the importance of healthy cooking for the next 364 days. My Healthy New Year 2014 recipe is the Leek&Chickpea Cream Soup. Enjoy!

What do we need?

1 leek

1 cup of cooked chickpeas or 1 can of chickpeas (fresh chickpeas cooked by you are much better than a can!)

1 onion

1 clove of garlic

250 ml of cream

parsley leaves

olive oil

salt

black pepper

slice of bacon

How to prepare?

 1. If you have fresh chickpeas, let them soak in water for one night

2. The next morning, cook the chickpeas in water until they’re soft. Sometimes it may take even more than 2 hours

  1. First of all, thank you for the “like” on my blog! Much appreciated…and it’s what led me here. This is a good thing. Why? I LOVE leek soup!! I hadn’t tried it with chick peas, though; there is a very good chance I will be putting my hand-held blender to use this evening! :)
