    Default Garbanzo (chickpea) Soup

    I had a bag o' garbanzos in the pantry. Reason enough for soup in my house.
    I cooked all of the garbanzos in the pressure cooker, and once cooked, put
    half of them in the freezer for another batch o'soup. Sauteed a chopped
    onion and several cloves of garlic (I wanted it to be REALLY garlic-y), then
    added a finely chopped carrot and continued to sautee. Threw in quite a bit
    of cumin, coriander, aleppo pepper and a touch of cayenne. Added broth,
    some tahini, a LOT of lemon juice (Meyer, from my tree) and about half of
    the garbanzos. Blitzed the beejeezus out of it with the stick blender.
    Then added a medium-chopped sweet potato, some chopped frozen spinach and
    the remaining garbanzos. Cooked until the potato was cooked through and
    added some chopped flat-leaf parsley and cilantro.

    Oh my goodness, delicious. Very tasty indeed, such nice flavor with all
    that lemony, garlicy, herby, spiciness to it. Had it for lunch along with
    some toasted pita bread and a salad.

    This sounds really good. I love these beans. We actually snack on them
    plain every now and then. (One of the reasons our HDL cholesterol reading
    is always at 70+. )

    They're really good roasted too, either plain, with salt or with seasoning
    of choice.
