This is surprisingly delish! You will want to make more after you try it. I use my Vitamix to blend up the veggies to a puree, but if you have a blender, adjust your recipe according to that particular kitchen appliance.
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp. diced onion
1/2 cup steamed chopped carrots
4 spears of asparagus, steamed
3/4 cup chopped broccoli, steamed
1 cup diced cooked potatoes
2 cups of spinach, washed
1/2 cup steamed chopped yellow squash
1/2 cup steamed chopped zucchini
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1 (15 oz.) can drained chickpeas
Place all ingredients, except the chickpeas, into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
- Select variable 1.
- Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
- Blend for 6-7 min. or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid.
- Reduce the speed to Variable 2 and remove the lid plug.
- Add the chickpeas and blend for 5-10 sec.
