  4. Spread out on a tray lined with parchment paper, spray with a little more spray oil and roast in the oven for approx 30-40 mins
  5. When vegetables are almost ready you can make the soup.
  6. Heat the stock and then add to a blender along with the roasted vegetables (or you can use an immersion stick blender)
  7. Season as needed with salt and black pepper.
  8. Serve in bowls and top each serving with 1/4 cup of chickpeas, a little feta and a sprinkle of fresh chopped coriander (cilantro)

If you prefer you can use dried chickpeas for this dish. Just soak overnight in water, rinse and drain, then add to a large pot, cover fully with water, bring to a boil and simmer for about 2 hours covered. They will be cooked and lovely and creamy. You can then coat with the paprika and salt.
