This soup is one of my all-time favourites. It was inspired by the “chicken and stars” soup that my mum used to give me when I was a kid, home from school with a cold. I still love the look and feel of the little star-shaped pasta! If you can’t find them, just substitute any other small dried pasta.
There is something so satisfying and hearty about this soup, yet it is still light enough to enjoy in the middle of summer. And it’s good for you, too! Chickpeas and white kidney beans are high in fibre and a good source of vitamins and minerals.
