Spring Vegetable Soup with Chickapea Penne
Spring Vegetable Soup with Chickapea Penne is a combination of some of my favorite spring vegetables like asparagus, carrots and spring peas to name a few to make a delicious soup. I finished it off by garnishing with a little parsley and freshly grated Parmesan. Such a fabulous way to celebrate spring that leaves you feeling full and satisfied!
Happy to be partnering with my friends at Chickapea on this wonderful spring soup. As many of you know, I am gluten free so this lentil chickpea pasta is a favorite. Chickapea pasta has a unique texture and wonderful nutty flavor that holds up to all kinds of sauces and ingredients. It’s non-GMO and has a low glycemic index plus it’s a superfood with more than 25 grams of protein.
