This healthy soup is thick and wonderfully rich. Chickpeas help the digestive system, which in turn helps clear up complexion problems. The garlic turns sweet when roasted and provides a boost for your immune system.
Serves six to eight.
In a soup pot, heat the olive oil under medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, and celery and sauté for 10 minutes. Add the chickpeas, roasted garlic, rosemary and chicken stock. Cook for 20 minutes.
Transfer soup to a blender in batches and puree until smooth (or use an immersion blender). Return pureed soup to the pot and reheat. Taste and adjust seasons. Just before serving, add the lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley and stir to combine.
