This soup is not only delicious, but also healthy and the perfect winter warmer. Lamb is an excellent source of first-class protein and vital nutrients such as iron, zinc, selenium and vitamin B12. Chickpeas are an excellent source of protein and fibre and may also aid weight loss, regulate appetite and stabilise blood sugar levels.
