A. M. A. Z. I. N. G. Seriously good soup! I made a double batch and we invited my MIL and grandparents to come to dinner. We ate it with some grilled cheese sandwiches. It was a delicious dinner! I did omit the chickpeas and cabbage, but added green beans and spinach. Everyone loved it, and we ate every last drop.

Next time I will remember to cut my carrots smaller because I had to cook it an extra long time in order to get the carrots tender enough.

love it but then we are soup addicts. Omitted chickpeas because of personal tastes and used leeks rather than onions. Thanks for a great submission. Will keep the chills away on a stormy day.
