The weather in LA has been unusually chilly the last few weeks, which had me seriously craving a bowl of hot tomato soup!  Lucky for me on one particularly gray day, I looked through my cupboard and found everything I needed to make my own soup from scratch!  I decided to add the chickpeas because firstly because, I love them, secondly because I thought that blending them would add a nice flavor and texture.  I was correct, this is now my very favorite tomato soup!  I topped my bowl with fresh basil and shredded mozzarella cheese, but you can do whatever you want!
