goodness in a bowl

This satisfying stew comes together in a snap. Mashed chickpeas add body to the broth, and tomato paste adds a savory note without piling on the sodium. To simplify the prep, look for pre-chopped fresh onion and shredded carrot, or a soup starter mix in the produce section.

Can be made with any microgreens, but works especially well with Oxbow mixes that include hearty sunflower greens.

Mash 1 can chickpeas with a potato masher or fork. Set aside.
