It’s a very easy soup to make. The addition of chickpeas and quinoa is a nice change to the soups I usually make. The chickpeas and parsley really bring the soup together. I would make this again. I like the protein value of this soup too!

How could I lower the amount of salt? Need to watch my sodium in take.
Sounds and looks delicious.

Hi Stella! The easiest way to reduce the sodium is to skip the canned chickpeas and soak them from dried. Or you could leave them out altogether. Also, make sure your vegetable broth is “no salt added”.
