Dinner Home Lunch

Moroccan inspired, cauliflower and chickpea soup. Fantastic dinner option for the long and cold evenings.

The mix of spices and roasted chickpeas make this dish delicious and full of flavours.

My cauliflower and chickpea soup can be cooked in a bigger batch and stored in the fridge for later. I love keeping a portion for next day lunch which saves me from cooking another dish.
