  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a medium-sized pot until warm. Add cumin seeds and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic; cook and stir until onion is softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, chickpeas, and kale.
  2. Bring soup to a simmer and cook until kale is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; stir in parsley. Remove from heat; top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Vegetable stock can be used in place of chicken stock. Other greens such as spinach, collards, or Swiss chard can be used in place of kale. Use your judgment on the amount of greens you wish your soup to have.
