Chickpeas Saag Soup | Chinese Spinach Chickpeas Soup

Chickpeas Saag Soup

Chickpeas Saag Soup is a very healthy and satisfying dish, which can be served in either lunch or dinner. This recipe requires minimal ingredients and very less effort. The main ingredients of this soup are chickpeas and Saag. As you know, chickpea is full of protein and Saag has lots of fibers. If you want to eat a carb-less diet than this recipe is for you.

For this recipe, I have used dried chickpeas that are cooked in an instant pot/pressure cooker. It takes little efforts when you prepare chickpeas at home, but it is totally worth it. Fresh chickpeas made from scratch taste so much better than the pre-cooked/canned chickpeas. However, if you don’t have the time it’s totally fine to use canned/pre-cooked chickpeas for this soup.

Saag means any kind of cooked greens. In this soup, I have used Chinese spinach (Poro leaves) but you can choose your favorite greens for this recipe. Making this soup is very simple, first, I have sautéed saag with ginger, garlic, and onion and then added the cooked chickpeas and water. To make the soup a little thicken, I have added cheddar cheese. If you are following the vegan diet, you can use 2 tbsp of mashed/blended chickpeas to make your soup thicken. This soup can be served with rice/quinoa or any flatbread or a big soup bowl.
