Things have been a little quiet around here for a few days as I’ve been under the weather. Lying in bed with cold/flu symptoms is never fun and I’m really about done with it; however, it is the perfect time to enjoy some soup. Between the hubs and I, a lot of soup has been getting made so I thought I might at least try to gather the strength to snap one photo and post it for the world to see.
For years, I’ve been saying I was going to make this Mediterranean Chick Pea Stew by Nadia G so now seemed just like the perfect time. Although, the recipe was good, the hubs and I were both a little disappointed. We were expecting it to be a little zestier. Tomato was the overwhelming flavor and I couldn’t really feel the heat or taste the lemon, mint or parsley. If I felt better, I would have tweaked it on the spot; however, next time I will probably use more chili’s or add some spicy paprika, at the least. It’s a great base recipe that I can tweak for our families tastes, though.
