Any soup containing chickpeas (garbanzo beans) that I tried up to now was a success. So was this Chickpea and Cabbage Soup. It seems you cannot go wrong with chickpeas :o) This time I wanted to make cabbage soup in some different way then I usually do (with tomatoes) so I combined it with chickpeas, corn, carrot and peas. Instead of noodles, I added some rolled oats to thicken a soup. Dill was a good choice of herb, in my opinion. If you don’t like dill, you can replace it with thyme or parsley or some other herb you like.
Chickpea and Cabbage Soup is a light dish when you need a break from usual concentrated food.
