When preparing this garbanzo soup, I found a shortcut so I could serve it faster: I used canned garbanzos. I know, I’ve always said I prefer making things from scratch, but every once in a while, I use canned garbanzos because they’re really easy to use, and they’re delicious if rinsed well. When the soup is ready, I like to serve with tortilla chips. I also add avocado because I love avocado, and sometimes I use yogurt instead of cream. You can enjoy this soup on a cold night. I’m sure you’ll love it! MORE + LESS -
