Chickpea Vegetable Soup with Lemon and Dukkah, gluten-free

This Chickpea Vegetable Soup with Lemon and Dukkah tastes like liquid gold and is my all-time favourite vegetarian soup. It's hearty, healthy, gluten-free, and dairy-free, with an explosion of flavour. Best of all, it will fill and warm you to the core, without weighing you down, and the addition of dukkah adds texture and another level of flavour, so what's not to love? Let's begin.

Helpful Tips

Vegetable Stock or Bone Broth: Using a home-made stock is preferable but not a necessity, however, if you are not vegetarian or vegan, I would recommend using a bone broth as it contains amino acids (great for digesting food), calcium, iron, and potassium and can be a very flavourful addition. This is one I choose to add Gevity Bone Broth Body Glue for overall health.


Choice of Vegetables: There are a few vegetables I would suggest not leaving out and that would include carrots, zucchini, and corn. However, the cauliflower can be swapped with potatoes and the spinach can be swapped with celery stalks and celery leaves or kale.


Lemon Juice: Please only use fresh lemon juice and not store-bought, pre-packaged lemon juice. Approximately 1/4 cup of lemon juice is added to this soup which makes it tangy, but that is the appealing part.


Dukkah: Any dukkah can be used. I have added my favourite which is Pistachio by Table of Plenty


Chickpeas: I use organic canned chickpeas that I rinse well and drain, however, if you prefer to use dried chickpeas, I suggest cooking them first and then adding them to the soup as per instructions.

Storing and Meal Prep

I always make a big pot of gluten-free Chickpea Vegetable Soup with Lemon and Dukkah, as we love leftovers. We could eat it for lunch the following day or make enough as part of our weekly lunch meal prep.

  • Add any leftovers to an air-tight container and keep it all week, OR

  • Place lunch-size servings into air-tight containers or glass jars to take to work and heat in the microwave.

  • If you want to freeze the soup, do not add the spinach leaves or lemon as the spinach will be sludgy, and the freshness of the lemon will fade. Add these once defrosted and ready to reheat.
