Chickpea Creamy Vegan Soup

Chickpea Creamy Vegan Soup

This Chickpea Creamy Vegan Soup is a one pot recipe that comes together easily and quickly. Topped with roasted chickpeas for a crunchy addition. This vegan soup is gluten-free and hearty.

Garbanzo beans are a wonderful source of fiber and protein. I love making this chickpea creamy vegan soup for meal prepping. This vegan soup recipe is very versatile and great to eat as a meal or side. For this soup I used chickpea pasta but you can use other choices. Although I prefer using a gluten-free option.

Let’s talk about the ingredients in this chickpea creamy vegan soup:

  • Chickpeas are a great source of vitamin B6, folate, vitamin C, protein and soluble fiber. They taste really delicious and also help to control diabetes, hair loss, help with digestion and anemia.
  • Veggie Broth: Save money and avoid food waste using veggie scraps to make your own broth. If you are using store-brought use an organic low sodium brand.
  • Garlic Cloves:  You can save time and use ready to use mince garlic but I totally recommend you to use fresh garlic. There’s nothing better than the flavor of fresh veggies.
  • Chives and Basil:  I use this herbs from my garden. These herbs are very easy to grow. If you are buying them, use fresh instead of dried. If you can’t find fresh it’s okay to use dry.
  • Crushed Tomatoes: I recommend you to use organic and low sodium.

Roasted Chickpeas (Optional)

  • Rinse and pat dry chickpeas. Coat with olive oil and seasonings. Bake them for about 25 minutes over 350 degrees. I used my air fryer and baked them for 15 minutes.


If you are using a regular blender please allow soup to cool down for about 15 minutes to avoid burning yourself when pouring soup inside blender.
