That sounds fabulous! I just finished off my last batch of soup and this will replace it for this weeks lunch offerings.The Free Spirit Saver who walks the path with Greebo.

A friend gave me a recipe for this soup. Hers is slightly different: she puts sweet potatoes in it. It's delicious. Regular potato would probably work well too.

Sweet potato instead of the chickpeas or as an additional ingredient? It would go together well with it, give more body to the soup. I love sweet potato soups, too.

The ingredients mirror closely those of hummus (especially if, like me, you use PB instead of tahini to save money!), and who doesn't love hummus? Sounds great and inexpensive too - and I think I actually have everything on hand

I just made this soup. mmmmmm
I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used powdered chicken flavored bullion (mixed up 1 qt), used 1 qt of diced tomatoes (frozen from garden last year), the can of chick peas (I got dried ones but haven't cooked them yet), a combo of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. It came out great.
This looks like a recipe that will do well with substitutions and changes, Tightwad Gazette style.
I'm lazy so I just chopped everything up and tossed it in the pot. After the potatoes were soft I stabbed at them several times with a hand held potato masher to make the soup thicker.
