Garbanzo and Zucchini Soup


  • 2 Tbs olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  • 3 Tbs parsley, chopped

  • 3 Tbs fresh basil, chopped

  • 2 medium zucchini, whole

  • 1 can (425g) garbanzo beans, (15 ounces)

  • 1 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 bunch beet greens or other mild flavored greens

  • Pepper to taste

  • 4 tsp Parmesan cheese*, grated, optional

The sweetness of the zucchini comes through in this summer garden soup. For best results, use very fresh vegetables.


  • In a large soup pot, heat olive oil and add onion. Sauté onion until transparent. Add garlic, parsley and basil and cook for a few minutes more.
  • Add zucchini and cook just until the squash is tender, stirring occasionally. Add garbanzo beans, salt, and water and bring to a boil.
  • Turn heat down and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place greens in a sink full of water and swish around to thoroughly wash them. Drain water, and shake the greens to partially dry them. Place them on a cutting board and cut the leaves into pieces measuring approximately 2x1/2 inches (5x1.5cm).
  • Cook for about 10 more minutes, until the greens have cooked down. Add fresh ground pepper, and serve with about 1 tsp (3g) of Parmesan cheese per serving.Add the greens to the soup pot and stir well.
