    7       c            Chicken broth
    1       c            Marinated artichoke hearts,
                         Drained
      1/4   c            Fresh parsley, chopped

   Heat half the oil in a frying pan with chopped garlic. Add bread
   crumbs and cook, stirring, 5 minutes.
   
   In a large saucepan or soup kettle heat remaining 1/4 cup of oil. Add
   zucchini, red pepper, tomato, eggplant and onion. Cook until tender,
   then stir in bread mixture. (Bread will break down as soup cooks and
   acts as a thickener.)
   
   Stir in paprika and garlic powder followed by chicken broth. Simmer 30
   minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in artichoke hearts and parsley.
   Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately in heated bowls.
   Garnish with toasted almonds. Makes 11 cups.
