Oh the snow. Oh the ice. I have to admit, I grew up in Pennsylvania and fully expect snow and ice in the winter but this winter! This winter has been like no other – our kids haven’t been to school for a solid week of school since before Thanksgiving 2013! Craziness. So yesterday was just like all the other days… a delay then a cancellation. My husband decided to stay at work overnight because he works an hour away and with an ice storm it was just safer. Blessed with our power not impacted, unlike many of my friends, I got cooking. I whipped up some fun treats and made a big pot of roasted tomato soup and added some chickpeas.
Okay, why chickpeas? I know, chances are you’ve never heard of anyone adding them to tomato soup but with my vegetarian lifestyle – I try to find opportunities where I can add fiber-packed foods, I do it. This wonderful combination pairs up beautifully together and keeps you full for hours. Perfect winter food to warm your soul too, which we all need with this crazy winter.
