Oh this looks really yummy, Johanna. I'll be trying this one this week, as soup weather has arrived in all its autumn glory.


Mmmmm, I love chickpeas so much! I've been planning on cooking them this week, so I could also try your recipe. Never seen the sumac spice in our supermarkets though...but I'm really longing to find it! Would it be possible to substitute it with any other spice?

I will have to look into what a Thermomix is, I see you do have a link..and I really must have one to make this soup.


Oh my, I love your version, especially the addition of turmeric. What a brilliant idea! Now I'm sitting here with a serious case of thermomix envy! Wish I had one.


johanna i love the flavors in this soup and have to try it straight away. luckily have almost everything at home!


Oh, the Secret Society of Thermomix Appreciation is active again. You, Ximena..
Love the addition of sumac!!

This looks delicious. I love hummus, and with the addition of all the spices, including sumac, and then served as a soup, I cannot think of a better dish for a fall day.


Can't wait to make this in my Thermomix :)


Your soup sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing:)


mmm - I was shopping at middle eastern shops yesterday - got a fantastic pita bread - but when I got home I wished I had bought sumac - will have to soon and try this soup


A delicious soup (love these spices) and a fabulous blog to boot! Glad I found you.


It looks absolutely delicious for this is getting cold quick now.


A word on hummus: peel. A woman from Lebanon advised me to peel the chickpeas before processing. She also pressure cooked her chickpeas (never canned) and did not use any oil in her recipe - only lemon juice, tahini and water. The oil was drizzled on top. This produced the lightest, fluffiest hummus I've ever eaten. It's worth the effort (even if you break down and use canned).



Thanks for your comment, my friend from Iraq says the same and I recently tried it for hummus... It brokey back but it was great in taste and texture!

Happy new year
