Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato

This Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato is a hearty soup with a few different components…they aren’t all necessary if you wanted something a bit simpler.  We have a great big log burner which I just love on cold days as the top opens up for cooking on.  So I often have pots of stock, soup or stew on the go 🙂  I made the base for the soup from scratch but feel free to substitute ready made chicken stock (or water) if that’s easier for you.

The Chicken Chickpea Soup with Sausage and Spiced Tomato is a sponsored recipe I came up with in conjunction with Countdown Supermarkets.  I used Kings Vegetable Soup Mix (bonus: it’s on price lockdown at Countdown), making soups super affordable this Winter.  I’ve got a 9 year old in the house eating like a teenager so I’ve been keeping a big pot of soup in the fridge to pull out for hearty afternoon teas when she gets home super hungry after school.  I do sometimes crave something ‘Winter-y’ with an injection of flavour though, so I’ve added a spicy punch to this soup and a few added healthy elements like kale and mushrooms.

Chicken Stock
  1. 4 chicken frames
  2. 2 carrots, roughly chopped

  5. 2 onions, roughly chopped
  6. handful parsley stalks
  7. 4 bay leaves (optional)
Soup
  1. 1 tin chickpeas in brine
  2. 2 cups chopped kale
  3. 3 pork sausages
  4. 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  5. 1 packet soup mix (I used Kings vegetable soup mix)
Spiced Tomato Sauce
  1. 4 large fresh very ripe tomatoes
  2. 1 large onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 cup tomato puree
  4. 4 cloves crushed garlic
  5. 1/2 teaspoon dried chilli pepper (less or more depending on how spicy you like things!)
  6. 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  7. 1 Tablespoon chopped herbs (I used thyme, basil and parsley)
Stock
  1. Place all ingredients in a large pot, cover with water and boil gently for two hours. Strain.
Soup
  1. 1. Place the soup mix and strained chicken broth together in a large pot and cook according to the directions (I simmered mine on top of the fire for 2 hours). Add the chickpeas 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
  2. 2. Fry the sliced mushroom until golden with a splash of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. 3. Pan fry the sausage until just cooked through then slice thinly.
Tomato Sauce
  1. 1. Fry the onion and garlic over medium heat until onion is softened but not coloured.
  2. 2. Add the tomato pieces and cook for a further two minutes.
  3. 3. Add the tomato puree, sugar, salt and herbs and cook until sauce is reduced and thick enough to spoon on top of the soup. Mine took about 25 minutes.
To serve
  1. Place the kale in the bottom of soup bowls, add the soup, then top with the sausage and mushroom. Place a large spoonful of the spiced tomato sauce on the top to finish.
