Tomato Chickpea Soup

I’ll let you in on a secret that isn’t really a secret. As a student, generally, you have absolutely no money. This is one of the harsh realities I’ve come to learn over this year. Even harder is trying to find recipes that are good, healthy and affordable. I’ve become a Pinterest tragic, pouring of recipe after recipe. ‘Pinning’ recipes that look eatable, affordable and not to difficult.

I’m not a huge Chicken fan. I don’t mind it every now and again but would defiantly not choose to eat it every night, which is annoying because Chicken is cheap! 

I remember Mum used to make a tomato chickpea soup. It’s really nice, really easy and REALLY cheap! I thought i’d share the recipe with you.
