Massel Bouillon and Seasoning compensated me and provided me with products to use in the recipes; however, the opinions I share in this post are my own.
Maybe I am in the minority, but I don’t believe soup recipes should go into hibernation since the weather is steadily warming up. Therefore, I’m debunking popular belief that soup is reserved for the cooler months since I have made one of the most delicious soups yet, thanks to Massel. The Moroccan Red Pepper Soup with Chickpeas is light and healthy with a harmonious combination of cumin, paprika, and coriander. It is perfect for the warmer weather! As it doesn’t get any better, this soup is suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike. It is also all natural, gluten-free, free of MSG, free of preservatives, trans fat-free, low carb, and kosher.
The original recipe calls for Massel chicken style broth, but I used the Massel Concentrated Vegetable Liquid Stock instead. It is just a matter of taste preference, but keep in mind both are vegan. The chicken style broth just has a chicken-like flavor, but the ingredients aren’t derived from animal byproducts in the least. I’m so accustomed to buying broth in bulky containers, so it is a breath of air that these broths come in pouches. And don’t let the size fool you, each pouch can make 2 quarts of broth by diluting them with water!
I also blended everything, including the chickpeas, to give the soup a lighter texture opposed to more of a heartier one if I hadn’t blended the chickpeas. I prefer lighter textures in soups, especially during the spring and summer, since I get bloated so easily!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon, smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon, cumin
- 1 teaspoon, ground coriander
- 1 carrot, grated
- 4 cups, Massel chicken style broth
- 2 red peppers, cubed
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- Heat up olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat.
- Add onion and garlic. When onion is translucent, add paprika, cumin, coriander and cook until heated.
- Add stock, carrots, and red pepper and simmer until peppers and carrots are tender. Approximately 15-20 minutes.
- Blend with emulsion blender or place in blender until smooth.
- Add lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste.
- Add chickpeas and heat through.
Garnishment isn’t required (I just love garnishments!), but I topped mine with Brad’s Raw Kale Chips in Pina Kale Ada Coconut & Pineapple, giving it an even more delicious flavor!

Anything with garbanzo beans aka chickpeas is A-OK in my book. Yum!
I do have soup even during warmer months – I find comfort in soup. I love this recipe. It isn’t the usual soup that I see and it sounds a bit more adventurous. I should try this soon.

I’m with you – soup is delicious any time of the year. I haven’t heard of this brand of chicken-style broth before, but I’ll check it out on Amazon. Red peppers and chickpeas – oh, yes, please!

Soup is a great option for me no matter what time of the year it is. This one looks and sounds delicious and I could do with a bowl to aid my sore throat.
This seems like a very convenient package.. I know measuring and getting it right in most recipes is very hard for me.
That looks like one delicious soup! I love the flavors of red pepper and chickpeas. Sounds like a delicious combination!

Looks good, almost seems like hummus soup. Would be great with a bread bowl or some nice chunky croutons.

What a fun way to have the soup. I’m going to look for it at the store so we can try it here!
That sounds amazing! I’m a huge fan of tomato soup, and this seems like a great variation of that type of smooth veggie soup. I can’t wait to give this a try! Five stars!

I love massel! I can’t wait to try this soup!
This recipe looks absolutely delish! I love anything with chickpeas. Pinning to my soup board, thanks for sharing the recipe!
That sounds very good. I have never tried chickpeas, but I hear they’re very good. Would love to try out this recipe sometime.
I love having soup recipes like this on hand for my lunches. This sounds like it would be great with a piece of toast or bread.

That looks and sounds delicious! I have been all about soups for a few months now and can’t get enough homemade. This is one I would really enjoy
Chicken boullon in a pouch! I am totally loving this! Great soup!

This sounds wonderful. I never knew that this brand had soups in a pouch like that. I really like that idea.
*raises hand* I also believe soups should not go in to hibernation just because the sun is out. There are plenty of lighter soups that are wonderful for spring and summer. There are also cold soups. I have a avocado soup recipe that I made last year and can’t wait to make it again this year.
Like you I believe Soup should be eaten year round and not just the cold months. I’ll have to look into Moroccan Red Pepper Soup with Chickpeas. The recipe you posted sure looks delish!
