  • 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

    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.
