Spanish Chorizo and Chickpea Summer Soup : Gracias a La Vida !
To our taste, soups are year rounders. It is nice to have something warm to eat, using spoon, even when it’s summer outside. It is like having a cup of tea in the dessert. Body temperature. Not steaming hot. This Spanish Chorizo and Chickpea Summer Soup is just one of that kind of dishes.
Here I photographed the sausage so you can see exactly what I have used:
All together, it requires twenty minutes to make it and have it with dinner roll or two. I have never made American dinner rolls and this is one of the challenges on my list but, originally, this summer soup would make a beautiful composition with Spanish pandesal ( meaning „bread of salt“ ).
We love it : tastes quite like an salty appetizer and we are used to pair these two to have week dinner.
