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!
