Just a few seasonal ingredients go into this simple minestrone-style soup to make a flavour-packed start to a meal. Add some crusty sourdough and extra-virgin olive oil for dipping and it could also serve as the main act. If you make the soup ahead, the chickpeas will soak up the liquid, but that's easily fixed by adding a little extra stock before serving. Start this recipe a day ahead to soak the chickpeas.
