How to make it
- Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until the onions begin to turn translucent. Add spices and sauté a minute or so. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, broth, and sugar. Season with salt and grinds fresh pepper to taste. Stir well.
- Note: Chickpeas should be just covered with liquid. If level is shy, add some water so the chickpeas are just covered.
- Bring to a simmer, then lower heat to low and gently simmer for 45 minutes.
- Remove soup from heat. If you wish, use a potato masher to mash up some of the chickpeas in the pot.
- Stir in the spinach and let heat through until wilted, just a couple minutes.
- Taste to adjust salt/pepper seasoning if necessary.
- Serve soup, drizzled lightly with extra-virgin olive oil and with warmed flat bread or toasted pita triangles.
