Emma's Courgette, Tomato and chickpea soup

By Emma Belton



Soup is a great way to pack some extra vegetables into your diet. You can also make batches of this soup and freeze it so that you have lunches ready for when you are busy. The addition of chickpeas gives you a good source of protein which will also help to keep your blood sugar levels balanced and keep you fuller for longer.
