Enjoy this delicious, hearty soup—a pretty yellow color, thanks to the turmeric—any time you're in the mood for a comforting bowl of wellness. If you prefer to cook the chickpeas from scratch, you can shorten the soaking period by boiling them (in enough water to cover by several inches) for 5 minutes, and then letting them stand in the pot for an hour.
