Spicy Chickpea and Kale Tomato Soup

IMG_7501

This soup bears all the Middle Eastern flavors I love in the spices and chickpeas, and reminds me of some classics, such as falafel and hummus. It has a deep, smoky flavor that fills you up and takes your senses to all the right places.

Here’s what makes this soup so wholesome:

Chickpeas: contain molybdenum, which helps to detoxify the sulfites accumulated in the body from drinking wine and eating luncheon meats, are a great source of iron, copper, zinc and magnesium, are packed with fiber, help to lower cholesterol, improve blood sugar levels and are a low-fat, complete-protein food.

Kale: contains nearly 20 percent of the RDA of dietary fiber in just one cup, is packed with carotenoids and flavonoids that fight against cancer, is anti-inflammatory with its omega-3 fatty acids content, prevents colon, bladder, breast, prostate, ovarian and gastric cancer, promotes cardiovascular health, is essential for detoxification, strengthens the bones, boosts immunity, lowers blood pressure, promotes a healthy immune system, and contributes to healthy vision.
