Vegan soup of chickpeas potatoes and black cabbage: a quick and easy detox recipe to recover a healthy eating rhythm after the holidays. We didn't binge: this year I prepared little good things but without exaggerating. Is, after the holidays, vegetable soups are a precious ally in the kitchen, because they allow us to eat well but in a healthy way. But if you still have a lot of leftover food from the party binges, I suggest you do not throw it away but recycle it following one of my RECIPES FOR RECYCLING LEFTOVERS of the holidays, from panettone to egg whites.
In this case I present a single dish, vegan, rich in protein made with potatoes, black cabbage and chickpeas. The base is a simple sauté with garlic, celery and carrot: the vegan soup of chickpeas potatoes and black cabbage is very fast to prepare, as you can see in this short VIDEO TUTORIAL on my YouTube channel. You can also safely use canned chickpeas. In this way the cooking time is drastically reduced and you will be able to prepare a hearty and delicious soup in less than 30 minutes.
My trick is to blend a small part of the soup to make it thicker and creamier. Eventually, drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, for me an Apulian Coratina with spicy and bitter notes, and a shower of roasted sesame seeds. Obviously, you can customize this soup by adding other types of vegetables or rice. Since we are in the perfect season for black cabbage, take a look at my article on RECIPES TO TRY WITH BLACK CABBAGE. And don't forget to try the CHICKPEA AND MUSHROOM SOUP, the classic CREAMY PASTA AND CHICKPEAS or the’TAHINA CHICKPEA HUMMUS. Have a good day.
