Middle Eastern Vegetable Soup
The aromatic stew contains a lot of flavour and a lot of valuable nutrients: chickpeas shine with fibre and minerals; the fresh vegetables and oranges provide the entire daily requirement of vitamins E and C.
This soup is supposed to be vegan? No problem, then replace the cream cheese with soft silk tofu.
