This winter vegetable soup was inspired by a recent trip to the farmers market. With tons of local squashes and root vegetables on display, vegetable soup came to mind. I added garbanzo beans and quinoa to make it heartier (and even healthier!), but you can leave those out, or make a few substitutions.
This butternut squash and chickpea soup is completely unprocessed, seasonal, vegan, and super simple to make. It’s perfect for a chilly autumn afternoon; the soup will fill your house with a warm and spicy aroma.
I enjoy tossing beans and seeds on as many recipes as I can and testing out the flavors.
I had no idea that one could make hummus from garbanzo flour (I’d always started with whole garbanzo beans), but if it’s a recipe on the back of a Bob’s Red Mill bag, it’s bound to be good.
