Winter Vegetable and Chick Pea Soup

This is a warm and comforting vegetarian soup made with freshly chopped vegetables, like onions, potatoes, winter squash and fresh spinach and GOYA® Low Sodium Chickpeas. The chick peas add not only a deliciously nutty taste, but also add low-fat protein; they elevate this soup from an appetizer to a hearty, healthy main course.
