Sweet Potato and Squash Soup with Pan-roasted Chickpeas

I love soups, especially in the colder seasons: I cook at least one soup each week this time of the year. I think that a delicious, hot bowl of soup warms up both body and soul. And it is also aiding digestion and helps us stay hydrated. It is wonderful how such a simple dish can do so much for us! ๐Ÿฒ


So if you are looking for a super easy and super-speedy recipe, then you are on the right page! ๐Ÿ˜Š This Sweet Potato and Squash Soup with Pan-roasted Chickpeas is ready in no time. Perfect for mid-week cooking. It is a hearty soup, and it is packed with vitamins and plant-based protein goodness. But most importantly, it is a smooth, creamy and flavourful dish. The sweetness of the sweet potato is balanced by the subtleness of the winter squash. The blended chickpeas thicken the soup nicely, and the pan-roasted chickpeas provide a bit of crunchiness and texture. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰
