Vegetable Soup with Roasted Garlic & Chickpeas

Domestic Diva - Veggie Soup with Roasted Garlic & Chickpeas

I love making soups in winter! There is something really heart warming and healing about them. Plus, garlic makes everything taste better, I have 10 in this recipe, but you can add more. You can never have enough garlic. Roasting the chickpeas and garlic gives a beautiful rich flavour to the soup.

1 tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
10 garlic cloves, peeled (or heaps more!)
4 tablespoons rice bran or veg oil
Garlic salt
200g leek
40g nuttelex or butter
150g celery
400g potato, chopped into 4cm pieces.
250g swede, chopped into 4cm pieces.
40g veg stock paste
600g water
Fresh parsley to garnish

Pre-heat oven to 180 deg.
Place chickpeas and garlic on to a small baking tray. Season with a little salt and garlic salt. Bake in the oven for approx. 20 minutes, stirring half way through. Just watch the chick peas as when you stir them, they can “pop”.

Place leek into the Thermomix bowl. Chop on speed 6 for 3 seconds. Add nuttelex or butter. Sauté for 3 minutes 100 deg speed 1.

Add celery, potato and swede into TM bowl. Chop for 5 seconds on speed 7. Add stock paste and water. Add slightly over half of the chickpea and garlic mix into the TM bowl with the soup. (reserve the rest for garnish on the top of the soup). Cook for 15 minutes 100 deg speed 2.

Once cooked, puree the soup by turning to speed 5, then slowly increase to speed 9 for 1 minute.

Serve soup with roasted chickpeas and garlic spooned on top. Garnish with fresh parsley and salt to taste.
