If you want to make this dish even more hearty, you can add some (cooked) short pasta a few minutes before serving it. You will love it!
Serve as an entrée - as the Germans do! - or as an all-in-one course, accompanied by a vegetable- or fish-based dish.
If you'd rather not find anchovies bits in your soup, replace the fillets with the anchovy paste.
A chickpea soup is a great first dish, nourishing and tasty, ideal especially during cold winter days (but you can enjoy it in summer too!). This healthy soup is quite easy to cook and can be modified in many ways according to personal tastes. You can prepare it with sage, add hot chili peppers or freshly ground black pepper, make it exotic with some curry.. or, as we suggest in this recipe, give it a special twist by adding anchovies and home-made flavoured extra virgin olive oil! Try it out, the result will surprise you!
