1 white onion, 7-8 small carrots, 5-6 staulks of celery (using all the inside little ribs and leafy parts too), 5-6 cloves of garlic, 1 shallot, 1 leek.
Heat some EVOO, saute the veggies til the onions soften. Add a can of chopped tomatoes, a can of chick peas and a box of chicken broth. Season to taste with salt, pepper & herbs. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Blend in batches, return to heat. I topped mine with some grated Parmesan since that is what was in my frig. Bon Appetit!
