Strip the rosemary needles form the stalks and finely chop. Finely chop the garlic. Heat 2 tablespoons oil. Sweat the rosemary and garlic in the oil. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, tomato puree and stock. Cook for 30 minutes. Puree some of the soup with a hand-held blender, if necessary thin with some water. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut the Emmentaler AOP into 1 cm cubes. Cut the sliced bread into larger cubes. Fry the bread cubes in the remainder of the oil until crispy. l

Pour the soup into bowls and scatter the cheese and bread cubes on top.

Tip: replace the dried chickpeas with 2 tins of cooked chickpeas.
