  • 3/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 6 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cups leafy greens of choice (we used half kale, half spinach)
  • 2 15. oz cans garbanzo beans

Herbed Oil:

  3. Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.
  4. After 20 minutes, add in lemon juice, leafy greens and garbanzo beans and cook a few more minutes, until greens are wilted. 
  5. Meanwhile, add all herbed oil ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and well incorporated. 
  6. Serve soup with a drizzle of oil over top and enjoy!


You can use any green vegetables you have on hand. We used about 4 cups total (celery, zucchini, green beans and peas).
