Leek & Potato Soup with Spiced Chickpeas

The most delicious winter soup recipe ~ Leek & Potato Soup with Chickpeas

What I love about this soup (apart from the creamy deliciousness) is the addition of chickpeas which adds valuable plant based protein to the meal…

This is such a hearty, easy to make winter soup, I absolutely love it!! It’s one I’ll be making over and over again through the winter months..

The spiced chickpeas add another level of flavour and so does the added chilli oil.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do ♡
