If you like hummus, you are going to LOVE this vegan hummus soup recipe!
Simple, and simply wonderful. This soup is creamy, yet light, very comforting and something that just might become a part of your family’s regular dinner meals. You will experience all the familiar flavours of your favourite hummus flavoured with smoked paprika, turmeric and lots of lemons.
I highly recommend that you cook your own chickpeas whenever you can. Simply soak, drain and cook them with fresh water till cooked. You need 1 cup of dry chickpeas for this recipe which is for 3-4 people. Choosing organic beans is best, and buy them locally grown if you can find them. Try to refrain from purchasing canned foods, but when you do, make it a habit to read the labels because many canned foods contain BPA. However, a number of companies have changed their cans to make them BPA-free due to consumer backlash. This is a great example of how our choices can change the world for the better.

Dedicated To Your Health & Wellbeing,
This was SO good and SO easy! Might do sweet potato instead of carrot next time and add a red chili or a curry. Or a poblano. Very creamy!
