Roasted Carrot, Chickpea Soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette

This Roasted Carrot, Chickpea Soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette, is a healthy, flavourful and satisfying dish that can be served at lunch or light dinner and ridiculously easy to prepare.

Season of winter is in full swing, so is the season of soups, at least in my kitchen :) Already We have gulped down so many soup bowls, and there are many soup recipes waiting to be executed in my kitchen.  Freezing and Cold temperatures with Hot and Cozy soup go hand in hand, warming, and hearty soups to get you through the cold spell.

Remember I told you in this Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip and Walnut Soup post about how I went a bit crazy and bought a half trolly full of vegetables, just because they were 29p per bag, so I went on soup cooking spree and prepared huge batches of soups which overtook my fridge and freezer.

One of the soups I prepared was this Roasted Carrot, Chickpea soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette which is the result of a few leftover bags of carrots I had in my fridge. We just threw whatever we found in the fridge and pantry as we were going on holiday and wanted to use all our perishable ingredients. Instead of adding more vegetables I added Chickpeas so this soup would be packed with protein too.

This soup turned out so delicious, that after coming back from our holiday we already finished the frozen ones, and I had a go at making second time as per demands of the family and also I wanted to post this recipe on my blog.

So this soup of mine is Frugal, amazingly flavourful, spicy and delicious, and a bonus point is that it's vegan and so healthy.

In this soup, fresh and juicy carrots and chickpeas give such a thick, creamy and luscious texture, neither runny or lumpy, just right so it slips down your throat. A strong and warm flavour of harissa paste is so inviting in this cold weather. Zippy and fresh tasting coriander and lime vinaigrette brightens up the soup and makes this it all more enjoyable.

For a low-carb diet, serve soup without any bread.

  1. Never tried chickpeas in soup as I am not a lover of the taste of them, but think I will give this a try as I have some chickpeas in the cupboard. The strained water from a can is great for making egg free meringues in the same way as you do with egg white, just a piece of useless info for o]anybody that did not know.
    I think pureed with other ingredients to alter the flavour this would make a change from my usual carrot and lentil soup.
    over from the HIBS100 round up
