Stage 4 + 5
This delicious soup offers a hearty serving of vegetables and serves as an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients. Try serving with a grilled cheese on wheat bread.
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until the onion is soft. Add the celery, carrots and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Add in chickpeas, peas, broth, and yogurt and bring to a boil. Simmer the soup until the vegetables are soft (about 20 minutes). Using an immersion blender, blend lightly to keep the texture (about 10 seconds). For smaller children, or if you prefer a smooth texture, blend the soup to your desired consistency.
