Sweet Potato and Chickpea Soup

So I know it's still summer but I do love a soup anytime of the year.  Although I may just be looking for a good excuse to have ciabatta bread as well.    This bread recipe is absolutely amazing and perfect with dips, cheese or as a side to this delicious soup.  Thanks to ThermoMiss for sharing the the ciabatta recipe and thanks to Jane for bringing to my attention.
