Quick & Easy Chickpea & Pastina Soup with Lemon & Dill for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammie) Sundays

I needed a quick no-effort soup this weekend and so I tossed together this easy Chickpea & Pasta Soup with Lemon & Dill from my pantry and fridge. 

You could easily add veggies or anything to this soup--like chicken or egg or even cheese but I was wanting a simple vegan soup that would be good for my allergy sniffles.

Chickpea & Pasta Soup with Lemon & Dill
By Deb, Kahakai Kitchen
(Makes 6 Servings)

2 Tbsp olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp dried shallots
1 tsp celery salt
6 cups non-chicken vegan broth mix or broth of choice
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 cup dry pastina or other small pasta of choice
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
salt and black pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large soup pot and add celery and garlic, sautéing for 4-5 minutes until celery softens. Add dried shallots and celery salt and cook another minute. Add the broth and chickpeas and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes--until flavors meld and celery is tender. Add the pastina and cook according to package directions. 

Stir in dill and lemon juice, taste for seasoning and add salt and black pepper as needed. Serve and enjoy.

Notes/Results: Quick, easy and it hit the spot like a good vegan chicken noodle soup does. I love lemon and dill as they taste so fresh and light. This will make great lunches for my work week. I would happily make it again. 

Let's see who is here in the Souper Sundays kitchen this week!

Shaheen from Allotment2Kitchen brought Fresh Beans and Tomato Couscous Salad saying, "We had this Cherry Tomato Couscous Salad early on in the week when i time to extract myself away from the computer screen to potter a little longer in the kitchen to make lunch. It was not really much work, as couscous from a jar is effortless.  I am adoring the pop of colours coming from the cherry tomatoes from the garden."

Thank you to Shaheen for joining me this week!

  1. That pastina brings back memories. When I was growing up, I used to love pastina in my soups! Your soup looks really good!
