  • 2 large garlic chopped or 2 teaspoons of pre-chopped garlic
  • 2 cans of chickpeas with the liquid (to puree for the creaminess)

For a slurry to thicken the soup:

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons of cold water


  1. Chop by hand or with a food chopper (the Valdivia Chopper) the onion, and potatoes into cube or bit size, and finely chop the garlic. Set aside.
  2. In a food processer or blender puree 2 cans of the chickpeas with the liquid from the cans. Set aside.
  3. Heat the soup pot or Dutch oven on medium heat. 
  4. Add to the pot the onion and 1/4 cup of water. Saute and stir for about 3 minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and saute for 1 more minute. (add more water if this gets too dry so as not to burn the onion and garlic. 
  5. Lower the heat and add the chili flakes, thyme, rosemary, paprika, and pepper. 
  6. Next, add the potatoes, 2 cans of chickpeas (drained) and veggie broth. Mix well.
  7. Add the pureed chickpeas and bring to a boil.
  8. After the soup boils reduce the heat to a simmer and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. 
  9. After 20 minutes give it a stir and see if the potatoes are cooked and the soup is at a thickness that you like. If the soup is too thin, mix in a small bowl 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of cold water, add this to the soup, stir and simmer for 5 more minutes.
