Chickpeas are legumes that are useful for the health of the heart. Rich in fiber and proteins, control the levels of cholesterol and regularize bowel. To prepare a traditional soup it is recommended that you put them to soak at least 12 hours before cooking. Rinse and cook for about 40 minutes with herbs that improve the digestibility, then add salt. Finally, add tomato sauce, celery, extra-virgin olive oil and the ingredients provided by the recipe.
