Discover the warmth and flavors of the Middle East with this simple yet delightful Creamy Hummus Soup. Perfect for vegans and gluten-free, this recipe is a cozy bowl of comfort for any night.


Step 1: Preparation of the Soup Base

Begin your culinary journey by taking a medium-sized pot and filling it with 6 cups of cold water. Set it on a medium-high heat to bring to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, take this time to peel and finely mince 4 cloves of garlic. Add these pieces of fragrant garlic to the pot, covering it to let everything simmer and boil gently for about 10-15 minutes. This process will soften the garlic, allowing its flavors to infuse into the water, creating a simple yet aromatic base for your hummus soup.
Pro Tip: Keep the heat medium to avoid burning the garlic and maintaining a gentle simmer.

Step 2: Combining the Ingredients

With the garlic-infused water gently boiling, it's time to add the soul of the soup - the chickpeas and tahini. Measure out 2 cups of cooked chickpeas and 1/2 cup of tahini, then carefully stir them into the pot. Now, let's season the soup to perfection with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, 1 tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of curry powder, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp of turmeric. These spices will contribute to the warm, comforting flavor profile characteristic of Middle Eastern cuisine. Cover the pot again and let it cook for another 20 minutes on a low simmer. The slow cooking will help the flavors meld together beautifully and soften the chickpeas to a tender consistency.
Pro Tip: Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences before the final blend.

Step 3: Final Touches and Serve

Once the soup has cooked and the flavors are well-blended, turn off the flame. It's time to transform this chunky mixture into a creamy, smooth Hummus Soup. If you have an immersion blender, this is the perfect time to use it. Gently blend the soup directly in the pot until it reaches a velvety smooth consistency. If you're using a regular blender, ladle the soup into the blender, making sure not to overfill, and blend in batches for safety. To serve, pour the creamy soup into bowls, giving each a final flourish with a drizzle of tahini and perhaps a sprinkle of your favorite herbs or spices. Enjoy this comforting bowl of Hummus Soup, basking in the flavors of the Middle East from the comfort of your home.
Pro Tip: A drizzle of olive oil adds a luxurious finish to the creamy soup.
