Creamy Italian Lentil and Chickpea Soup

Creamy and wholesome. Tasty and satisfying
This Italian lentil and chickpea soup is all you'll ever want in a soup!

This post is written in collaboration with Ralphs Grocery. All opinions are mine alone.

Here is a wholesome hearty, quick and easy, one-pot recipe that is sure to fill your stomach and warm your soul.

This lentil and chickpea soup is packed with flavors and nutrients. It’s earthy and hearty, perfect for these cold winter nights when you crave something warm and comforting.
And with this soup you can indulge in something delicious without breaking your New Year resolution to burn off the holiday extra calories, and be ready to peel off your sweatpants and slide into your bikini as soon as the warm weather hits you 🙌🏻

For this recipe, I use staple ingredients that most likely you already have in your pantry. So this is an easy go-to recipe any time you crave a hearty and filling soup.

This recipe is pretty flexible. You can add or substitute many of the ingredients to your liking.
I start with a soffritto with chopped onion, celery, and carrots. Add garlic and some spices. I use oregano, rosemary, and thyme. But feel free to use your favorite.
I add cubed potatoes (you can skip on the potatoes but I like them here!). Followed by crushed canned tomatoes and broth. You can use vegetable broth (to make it vegan/vegetarian!) or chicken/beef if you prefer.
Add the lentils and simmer until mostly tender. Chickpeas and kale are added at the end. You can substitute kale for baby spinach or your favorite greens.

To make this soup creamier and more dense, all you have to do is puree' about 2 cups of the soup once it's ready and mix it back into the soup.

Simply serve with a drizzle of olive oil, red pepper flakes (if you wish!), and crunchy crostini bread on the side.

If you follow me on Instagram (you better be!! ;)), and have seen my stories, you'd know I was shopping at my local Ralphs Grocery store to buy all the ingredients to make this recipe.
What I love the most about this store: it makes it easy to find natural and organic products at a great value.
And if you didn’t know, Apple Pay is now available at all Ralphs locations, making the in-store shopping experience even easier when paying with your iPhone or Apple Watch at checkout 🙌🏻
