Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups dried chick peas, soaked overnight
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Spanish onion, coarsely chopped
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 large carrots, cut into half inch slices
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into half inch slices
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 pound greens (chard, Escarole, rappini, kale, or Collards)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
  • Serves: 6

    Instructions:
    Drain the chick peas and discard any loose skins. Set aside. Heat oil in a large soup pot and sauté the garlic and leek for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add the water, chick peas, carrots, celery, oregano, rosemary, and bay leaves. Boil for 1 1/2 hours. Remove bay leaves and stir in the greens and salt. Gently simmer, uncovered, until the greens are cooked until very soft, about 5 minutes for Beet Greens and chard, and about 12 minutes for Escarole and Kale. Blend in batches and add back to the pot.
