Chickpea & Noodle Soup


There is something about a big bowl of hot soup, it warms the soul. Especially when the weather is chilly, which it has been lately. And now that we are getting closer to winter what better then to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a cup of hot soup:)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion-small diced
  • 2 cloves garlic-minced
  • 2 stalks celery-small diced
  • 2 carrots-peeled, small diced
  • 8 mushrooms- sliced
  • 1/8 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried sage
  • 6 cups of stock or water
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • spaghetti noodles (broken into 3)
  • 1 tsp of tamari
  • 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp of miso
  • freshly ground pepper
  • sea salt
  • fresh parsley
  • green onions

In a large pot on medium high heat add oil,onion and garlic saute until onions are translucent
add celery, continue sauteing for 3- more minutes. Add carrots, mushrooms, celery salt, oregano. and sage. Saute for 2 more minutes. Add water and chickpeas. Bring to a rapid boil, add noodles.
Simmer for 20 minutes or until noodles are cooked. Add seasonings, leave the miso for the last ingredient. ( remember not to boil the soup once you add it, as it will lose all its beneficial properties:)
