Starting this year, I finally want to change something about my nutrition. Which seemed to me less difficult after the holidays. Why? After I ate every single cookie I could find, I need to finally eat less carbs and more fresh vegetables and fruits.

A recipe that I favour is my hot chickpea soup. Chickpeas are full of proteins and well soups are just perfect when it comes to cold January days (#nowordsneeded).

So grab some cans and get cooking! 😉

What Do You Need:

– 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

– 1 Medium Onion, chopped

– 1 Large Garlic Clove, minced

– 2 Tsp. Ground Cumin

– 800 Grams Chicken Broth

– 1 Cup Water

– 4 Cups Cubed Butternut Pumpkin

– 1/4 Tsp. Salt

– 450 Grams Chickpeas, drained and rinsed

– 400 Grams Sliced Carrots, drained

– 400 Grams Kale, coarsely chopped   

What Do You Have To Do:

  1. First put oil, onions and garlic in a pan and heat it up until it gets soft. Add cumin and leave it for one minute.
  2. Then you can already add the broth, water and pumpkin and salt. Heat and boil it.
  3. Afterwards you can lower the heat and start simmer the stew for more than 20 minutes. The more time you give, the softer the pumpkin will be.
  4. Finally add chickpeas, carrots and cale. Continue to simmer about 5 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  5. Et voila: Your healthy lunch is ready! For some extra spice you can add parsley on top. 😉
