Cholia is one of my favourite winter produce and it shines in this soup. Spring Onions, Basil and Green Garbanzo Soup perfect for the nippy evenings with a side of toasted bread.
This delicious spring Onions, Basil and Green Garbanzo Soup has turned out to be my favourite way to eat cholia this winter. I made it for the visiting nephew last week and then both the man & the child asked to make a batch before I left for a small weekend break. And today the child asked me, can we have it for dinner again mumma!
If you ask me the idea of this soup was inspired by the soup like curry from UP called Nimona. I make the cholia version of it very often at home along with the standard peas version too. And that made me think of converting this into a soup with international flavours instead of Indian spices. It is fairly simple to make, so would if you guys tried it. And If you do, share a picture with me on twitter, instagram or Facebook? I would love to hear what you have to say about it!
