Tomato Soup with Chickpeas and Spinach

This tomato soup with chickpeas and spinach is unlike anything you could possibly find from a can. Satisfying, satiating, and surprisingly easy. Also gluten-free and dairy-free.

Tomato soup is an iconic American dish immortalized—in a Campbell’s can—by Andy Warhol and firmly fixed in the nation’s collective childhood nostalgia. This version adds a new dimension to the classic, spiking it with herbs and spices, and enriching it with chickpeas and fresh spinach. The result is smoky, spicy, and truly irresistible—equally delicious swirled with labneh or served as a creamy companion to a grilled cheese sandwich. It also tastes great as is, so feel free to enjoy dairy-free.–Angie Zoobkoff

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot set over medium heat. Toss in the onion, celery, and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, cumin, basil, rosemary, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add 1 can of drained chickpeas, the tomatoes with their juices, 4 cups of the broth, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced slightly, about 20 minutes. Stir in 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

  • Purée the soup until smooth using an immersion blender or let the soup cool for 10 minutes and then carefully blend it in batches in a standard blender. Return the soup to the pot, return to low heat, and if a thinner consistency is desired, stir in a little more broth. Stir in the remaining can of chickpeas and the spinach and cook until the spinach wilts, 3 to 5 minutes. Taste and season with more salt, if desired. Pour into bowls and top with a dollop of yogurt or labneh, if desired. Serve hot.

*How do I substitute dried chickpeas for canned chickpeas?

Some peeps prefer dried chickpeas because they’re more economical and, they swear, they have more flavor. If you want to give dried garbanzos a try, we’ve got a few tips for you. 
You can soak them in a large bowl, filled with cold water, for 12 hours then use as you would the canned kind. 
Or…if planning ahead isn’t your thing (we get it) then you can have ’em ready in an hour. Dump those chickpeas into a saucepan, cover with water (2 inches above the beans). Now, bring to a boil, cook for 1 minute, cover and remove from the heat. Let ’em soak for an hour. By then they’ll be soft, tender, and ready for your soup.
