Revithosoupa~Greek Chickpea Soup

The most simplest Greek soup recipe, that is definitely worth a try. Perfect for those who are fasting for Greek Easter.


Greek Chickpea Soup



  • 16 oz dried chick peas
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • clove of 1 garlic
  • 1 lemon


  1. Place chickpeas in large bowl, and cover with cold water. Let sit overnight, then drain water. Give the chickpeas a good rinse, to remove the soapy water.
  2. Place chickpeas into a large pan, along with the olive oil, onion, and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes until the onion and garlic become caramelized. Add the water, and vegetable broth and simmer.
  3. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and spices and cook for about 30 minutes. Once all the ingredients meld together, remove from heat. Place ingredients into a food processor and process until blended.  Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with a sprinkle of Greek oregano, and lemon juice.
