There are so many reasons to love this soup; added protein-rich chick peas, carrots, celery and tomatoes make it more substantial and tastes even better on the second day. This vegetable-packed healthy soup recipe is inspired by caldo verde, a Portuguese soup made with kale, potatoes and linguica sausage. I had planned to make this healthy soup last night before I knew temperature is going to be in the single digits for much of the day.
I love anything with fresh tomatoes and basil and this soup is my most favorite ever. I always make it in a big batch so I have enough left for my next meal. The flavor is incredible from fresh tomatoes and basil. This creamy soup brings a taste of garden in every bite. It is exactly the kind of meal required to step into the fall season!
