  Categories: Polkadot, Faylen, Soups/stews, Vegetables
       Yield: 4 Servings
  
       1 lg Onion, chopped
       4    Cloves garlic, minced
       1 c  Skim milk
      16 oz Chickpeas, drained and
            -rinsed
       5 c  Fresh spinach
     1/8 ts Cardamom
     1/8 ts Nutmeg
       1 ts Curry powder
            Salt and pepper
  
   Saute the onion and garlic, covered, over low heat (they will cook in
   their own juices) until the onion is translucent.  Add the milk and
   raise heat to medium, and cook just until boiling, stirring
   constantly.   Reduce heat to prevent boiling over, add chickpeas,
   spinach, and spices, and continue to cook, stirring, until spinach is
   wilted.  Remove from heat. Place 1 1/2 cups of the soup into a
   blender or food processor and puree. Return puree to soup, stir well,
   and serve hot.
   
   Rinse spinach in warm salted water, drain, and shred or chiffonade
   before using.
