This is a soup that my family almost always request during a chilly day or during lent. I love it so therefore I don’t mind cooking it. Like most of my recipes this one is super easy and quick.
You will need:
- 2 cans Barbanzo beans
- 3 Roma Tomatoes
- 1/2 Onion
- 1 tbsp Cumin
- 1 tbsp Knorr
- 1/2 cup Cilantro
- 1 garlic Clove
- 1 yellow Pepper
- 8 cups Water
- Oil for frying
Rinse the garbanzos and set aside to drain.
Heat some oil on a medium pot and add the chopped cilantro, the tomatoes, onion, yellow pepper and minced garlic.
Fry for about 5-7 minutes or until the tomato starts to dissolve.
Add the garbanzos and fry for about 3-4 minutes.
Add water and bring to a boil.
Add the knorr and the cumin.
Continue to boil for about 2 minutes and do a taste test, season to your preference. Mash the garbanzos only a few times. Do not mashed completely.
Let boil for about 5 more minutes and you are set. You may add rice to this dish just like we do. Adding the rice is completely up to you.
