As an added bonus, according to Deb, "chickpeas are a good source of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that your body needs to make protein. High tryptophan foods play a role in lifting your mood, and tryptophan is even used therapeutically to help treat anxiety, depression and sleep disorders." So this quick-and-easy soup also helps you relax, and that sounds good to me.
