This soup makes a great healthy lunch or light dinner on its own, but there are plenty of pairing options if you want to make a meal that’s a little more substantial. A classic choice is a crispy baguette spread with vegan butter, perfect for dipping in the steaming broth.
For a lighter pairing, consider a crisp side salad made with fresh greens, cherry tomatoes and a zesty vinaigrette. The lightness of the salad adds a more refreshing element to this otherwise warming meal. Roasted vegetables, like Brussels sprouts or cauliflower, also make a delicious side dish.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even toss chickpeas with oil and spices and roast them in the oven to make a crunchy and satisfying topping for soup. This will add another dimension to the texture of the soup, while also giving it a good boost of protein.
