Tomato Soup with Chickpeas and Lemon

It’s time to ditch the notion that soup is just for colder months. A refreshing bowl can make a great starter in any weather, especially with fresh summer produce and a light kick of citrus. This tomato soup packs vitamin C, iron, potassium and lycopene, a potent antioxidant linked with lower prostate cancer risk. Chickpeas add a boost of fiber and protein while grilled lemons lend a sweet, tangy finish. Make room at the table because hot soup is making a cool comeback.

Ingredients

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 large carrot, sliced
1 large rib celery, chopped
3/4 cup sliced leek, white and 1-inch green parts
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 (14-oz.) can no salt added whole peeled tomatoes (or better still, use peeled fresh tomatoes)
1 (15-oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 tsp. smoked Spanish paprika
3 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
Himalayan of sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 lemons

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)

Instructions

1. In large heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until golden, 4 minutes, stirring often. Add carrot, celery, leek, and garlic, stirring to coat them with oil. Cook until leek slices are translucent and soft, about 4 minutes.

2. Add tomatoes one at a time, holding them over pot and crushing them in your fist. Add liquid from can. Add chickpeas, paprika and broth. Bring liquid to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are almost tender, 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. To serve, divide hot soup among four bowls. Cut 1 lemon into quarters. Squeeze juice from a quarter into each bowl, straining out seeds. From center of second lemon, cut four 1/4-inch slices. Heat a dry cast-iron skillet or grillpan over high heat. Add lemon slices and cook until caramelized to brown and lightly charred in places, 1-2 minutes. Turn and cook for 1 minute. Set 1 lemon slice in center of each bowl and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
