One Pot Greek Chickpea Soup Recipes For the Win!

This chickpea soup is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these fall months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  All the food gets cooked at once, which makes cleaning up a breeze. And the stove does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy one pot meals that are ready in no time!

How Do I Make This Greek Lemon Chickpea Rice Soup Vegetarian?

  1. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes until translucent. Pop in the carrots and onion and cook for 3 minutes more.
  2. Add the canned chickpeas, vegetable stock, bay leaves, herbs de Provence, salt, and pepper.  Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer.  Simmer for 45 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  3. Remove bay leaves from soup pot, and stir in the fresh parsley.
  4. To serve, dish rice in the bowl first, then pour hot soup over rice. Enjoy!
  5. Once soup has cooled, then add rice directly into the cold soup to prevent overcooking.
