GF Vegan One-Pot Chickpea Spaghetti Soup

February 19, 2021
This soup became my go-to immune and mood booster during this winter and it kept me healthy and strong.

Carrots and celery add beautiful color and a healthy amount of fiber, gluten-free spaghetti noodles and chickpeas provide the protein and lovely texture to the soup, and thyme and bay leaf bring all the flavors into unity. Perfect to cozy up with a blanket and your favorite movie or book. If you need a little more immune booster you can add some grated ginger and chilies as well.

1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add onions and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

2. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes more. Then add carrots, celery, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.

3. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add broth and bring to a low boil. Add drained rinsed chickpeas, thyme, and bay leaf.

4. Add spaghetti—break into smaller pieces in needed. Stir to separate to prevent them from sticking together.

6. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more salt or pepper to taste. Remove bay leaves before serving.
