Garbanzo Bean Soup

Garbanzo Bean Soup

It seems to be turning into soup month around here.  I have another GREAT one for you today.  Do you like hummus?  If so, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this Garbanzo Bean Soup! I think it’s fantastic and a snap to throw together as well.

Ok, wait…don’t run off!  You’re probably thinking Garbanzo Bean Soup? Really?  That doesn’t sound very appetizing! I know, I  did. Every time my mom would tell me how good it is and I should make it, I was like, “nah, that doesn’t sound that appealing”.  Well, its cold outside and I had three cans of garbanzo beans eating up space in my tiny pantry so I thought, why not? I’ll give it a try.

Ingredients

  • 3 15½oz. cans garbanzo beans, drained
