Packed with protein, this garbanzo bean soup is lightly scented with saffron, bay and other spices.



Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Sauté onions, red peppers, carrots and celery until soft, about 7 minutes. Add garlic, paprika, cinnamon and saffron and sauté 1 additional minute.

Add garbanzo beans, bay leaf, stock, tomatoes and greens. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve garnished with lemon zest, lemon wedges and parsley or mint.
