For the crispy chickpeas

  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas (1 can canned or around 240g)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the soup

  • 1/2 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3-4 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 cup cabbage chopped
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2.5 cups veggie stock plus more as needed
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or any plantbased milk of choice
  • 4.5 oz brown rice noodles
  • 2 cups spinach

To serve (optional)

  • green peas
  • capers


  • Start by preheating the oven to 200 degrees C/390 F. Toss the chickpeas in maple syrup, cumin, paprika, curry powder and salt. Spread them on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, until crispy. 
  • Meanwhile, cook the onion and the garlic in a non-stick saucepan for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant. Then, add the tomatoes, cabbage, onion granules and tomato paste, stirring everything together for around a minute more. 
  • Lower the heat, and pour in the veggie stock together with the tamari, paprika, black pepper and plantbased milk. Bring to the boil and simmer for around 5 minutes, until the cabbage is almost cooked through. 
  • Then add the rice noodles, and continue simmering until they are soft (this usually takes around 5 minutes). At the last minute, stir in some fresh spinach and serve the soup immediately with green peas and capers.
