Print this recipe
This delicious soup recipe is so easy to make — and it uses ingredients you probably always have on hand. Best of all, it’s low in carbs and full of flavor.
The chickpeas here add some carbs, but they also make the soup hearty and satisfying. If you want to make it even lower in carbs, leave out the chickpeas and add a diced cooked chicken breast instead.
