What’s In This Vegan Chickpea and Rice Soup?

  • Chickpeas: you can use either canned, or dried beans that you cook from scratch. If I use canned beans, I only use a no sodium added kind, like these here. That way, I can control the amount of sodium in the soup and make it as healthy as possible for my fam.
  • Rice: I used a basmati rice for this, but you can use any variety you have on hand. Basmati rice is a long grain rice, and is our favorite – I get the Royal brand here!  We eat it in soups, stews, and curries.
  • Olive oil
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Vegetable stock: also a low sodium variety. You can use a vegetable base like this one, or make your own stock from kitchen scraps leftover from veggie ends!
  • Spices: thyme, garlic salt (Badia brand is the one I use), and parsley
  • Lemon juice: freshly squeezed!
