Carrot Ginger Soup with Roasted Chicpeas

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! This year I decided to cook different dishes to change it up a bit. This soup was very easy and delicious to make. The great thing about soups is that it can be made ahead. This recipe is courtesy of Ayurveda. the recipe only serves 4 so I had to double it.

32 oz can of chicpeas

2 tbsp apple cider
