CHICKPEA KUMARA CREAM SOUP





Who doesn't love a comforting bowl of soup, especially on a cool day?


This Chickpea & Kumara soup is not only comforting, but also really good for you! You'll get the healthy nutrients from vegetables, lots of protein from the chickpeas and cheesy creaminess from Terra Smoky cashew cream cheese.


The soup is super easy to make, just watch the short 1,5 minute video below and follow me.


This recipe gives you a large amount, enough for 2 days (make only half the amount if you want less). So if you make it today, you've got tomorrow's lunch sorted. And believe me, the soup gets even better the next day!
