cozy comfort: cabbage and rice soup with chickpeas & carrots

This is one of those easy, no-brainer soups that takes the bare minimum of prep and worry out of making dinner. If your kitchen cupboards and fridge is anything like mine, you probably have the ingredients ready to go. Cabbage. Carrots. Rice. Chickpeas. It’s time to get your soup on!

Affordable and comforting, this soup has served me well on several occasions this fall. The cabbage and carrots soften into an earthy sweetness while the rice and chickpeas add heft. It’s not the prettiest soup, though I suppose a few sprigs of fresh dill could bring a bit of pomp and circumstance to this humble meal. Make sure you have leftovers, because this soup tastes great the next day – I just add a bit of water to reheat since the liquids seem to disappear overnight.

    Yum. Made this today despite the challenges of chopping stuff with a broken wrist. Thanks for a timely fall soup recipe. Just what the day called for – looking forward to leftovers tomorrow.

    Lisa, so glad you enjoyed it – even with your broken wrist!! At least the leftovers won’t cause further stress đŸ™‚

    I’ve recently unearthed the slow cooker from the bowels of our basement in order to start making stews and soups, as a cost-effective and time-efficient way of cooking. This week I made a batch of Moroccan chick pea stew with harissa. I’m going to try making this soup in the slow cooker soon. Maybe I will add some Polish sausage too for that smoky flavour.

    I’ve got to use my slow cooker more, Joanne! Sausage would be great here!
