This Tomato, Za'atar and Chickpea Soup recipe spices up your usual soup with fresh Middle Eastern-inspired flavors. Made with a concentrated tomato base, onion, and chickpeas, and brightened by a splash of white balsamic and za’atar (a Middle Eastern herb and spice blend that typically includes dried oregano, thyme, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds), this vegan chickpea soup recipe will capture your attention as well as your taste buds.
Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Add the za'atar seasoning and cook and stir for 1 minute or until toasted and fragrant.
Stir in the soup and water and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the chickpeas and simmer until they're warmed through. Stir in the vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
