Definitely not to be forgotten though is a dollop of coarse mustard! It gives this robust fall dish a lift. One easy soup that definitely delivers on both flavor and elegance. 

Chickpeas Soup with Thyme, Pine Nut & Mushroom Topping
(serves 4 portions)

Soup:
2 cans cooked chickpeas
1 yellow onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 bouillon cubes
fresh thyme
1 tsp coarse mustard + more for topping
salt & white pepper

Topping:
cremini mushrooms, quartered
olive oil
pine nuts
salt
fresh thyme

Drain the chickpeas and pour into a good sized soup pot. Cover with water and toss in the rest of the soup ingredients except for the salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 mins until everything has softened. Use a hand blender to puree the soup or a blender that can mix hot liquids for an ultra smooth consistency.

Season with salt and pepper. If the soup is too thick, you can just add a bit more water.

In a separate pan, toast the pine nuts and let cool in a bowl. Sauté the mushrooms with some olive oil and a good pinch of salt until most of their water is released and they begin to have golden crispy edges. Toss the mushrooms in the bowl with the pine nuts and add some freshly chopped thyme. 

Serve the soup warm with the mushroom topping as garnish and a dollop of the coarse mustard, let the cozy fall feelings come over you and enjoy!
