About this recipe: Quick & easy tomato soup, nice and creamy but with no cream ! a very tasty soup suitable for all with the added bonus of being cheap to make. Enjoy it on its own or serve with a spoon of plain yoghurt swirled in the middle, as a starter when entertaining crumble in some feta cheese and a few leaves of fresh basil ...yum ... Maybe a dash of tabasco if you like a little spice in your life !!
You can skip the chickpea element of this soup as it is extremely tasty without it. However the blended chickpeas gives the soup an added dimension and a nice creamy finish without having to add cream. Since I have discovered this little trick with the chickpeas I have used it in a couple of soups, you can also substitute butter beans as they work just as well :0)
