I got this out of Parade magazine ten years ago( '99). It is very garlicky, with an earthy flavor. Easy to make, too. I usually add seasoning as I go along. Thyme, Oregano, and even Rosemary is good in this. I have included the minimal spices. Add what you like!

I had a barley/ bean medly mix and I used that (included chickpeas). Was a very delicious soup for a rainy day. Served with Garlic Olive Oil Plate With Capers. We kept the vampires away. Thanks RK. Made for PAC Fall 09
