You start by preparing the vegetable or meat broth.

  1. Add the fresh rosemary to a whole bunch.
  2. Cook with the lid on over low heat for about 20 minutes.
  3. After the indicated time, blend with a blender and evaluate immediately or during whether to add a few tablespoons of boiling vegetable broth to achieve the desired consistency!
  4. Finally add salt.

Then prepare the bread croutons.

  1. Slice the stale bread to about 1 cm, cut into cubes of less than the same size.
  2. Add a drizzle of oil to a pan and, if you like, a handful of rosemary.
  3. Heat the pan over high heat and immediately place the bread cubes inside.
  4. Let brown on all sides, stirring constantly with a fork for 4-5 minutes over high heat (Remember that they burn very quickly, so the secret to having golden croutons is to turn them constantly.).
  5. Serve your chickpea soup hot, with a handful of croutons, a drizzle of oil and chopped rosemary!
