    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    4                    Cloves of garlic, minced
    1       c            Skim milk
   16       oz           Can chick peas, drained and
                         -rinsed
    4       c            To 5 c fresh spinach,
                         -rinsed, dried, and shredded
      1/8   ts           Cardamom
      1/8   ts           Nutmeg
    1       t            Curry powder
                         Salt and pepper to taste
 
   Saute the onion and garlic over low heat, covered,
   until the onion is translucent.
   
   Add the milk and raise heat to medium, and cook until
   a boil is just reached, stirring constantly.  Add the
   chick peas, spinach, and spices, and continue to cook
   and stir. When spinach is completely wilted, remove a
   cup and a half of the soup to a blender and puree.
   Return the puree to the soup, stir well, and serve
   hot. Makes 4 servings.

   and 2 g fat, so we were very pleased with ourselves.)
