Our Chickpea Soup with Pasta and Greens, in the latter category, gets its amazing flavors from an array of plant foods. Along with creamy, filling chickpeas, you’ll find colorful veggies like celery, carrots, kale and tomatoes, flavor mavens like onion, garlic, rosemary and red pepper, and whole-wheat pasta.
Needless to say, there is no shortage of nutrients and fiber in this dish. But what you’ll remember are its pleasing flavors and textures, the way it “sticks to your ribs,” and the satisfied smiles of everyone at your table.
