Gluten Free Creamy Hummus Soup

So you know when you have all these good intentions for making something homemade and yummy and it just doesn't turn out? Yeah, that happens to me all the time. I've had to learn to improvise so I don't waste food that didn't "turn out". That's what happened today with the hummus I was trying to make. Maybe it was because I was distracted by a fussy baby or the kids that were arguing over the rules of the board game they were trying to play. Whatever the reason the hummus was too garlicky and not the right consistency.

So I made it into soup. And guess what? It turned out really good! Trying to come up with a name for this healthy, gluten free, dairy free, simple soup was another thing. I liked my mom's idea to call it Yummus Hummus Soup. Whatever you call it, it was perfect with salad and some gluten free bread (which I made into rolls by baking in muffin cups). 
Start by making your almost hummus...

2 cups cooked chickpeas/garbonzo beans, drained (Cover 8 oz. dry beans with water, add 1 tsp. baking soda and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1+ hours, adding water as needed to keep them covered until the beans are soft.) 
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
2 cloves garlic
Puree beans, oil, and seasoning in a food processor until smooth (add water as necessary)

1 onion, chopped
2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
sea salt and pepper to taste
In a skillet heat 1 tbsp. olive oil. add chopped onion, chicken breasts, salt and pepper. You can cut the chicken into bite sized pieces before cooking them to help them cook faster. Dump the hummus into a slow cooker, add the cooked chicken and onion along with...
2-3 cups vegetable or chicken broth (msg and gluten-free)
3-4 carrots, sliced
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 celery heart, leaves and all (short center stock of a celery bunch)
1 tbsp. dried parsley, or a few sprigs chopped fresh parsley
top with parmesan cheese (opt.)
