Garlic Garabanzo Soup
1 15 oz can Garabanzo beans
1 med or lg onion
3 cloves garlic*
1/4 t salt*
1/8 t fresh ground pepper*
1/4 c sherry*
 *(more or less according to your tastes)
Chop onion & mince garlic.  Stir simmer the onion & garlic with water until
caramelized.   Add enough water to deglaze the pan.

Put garabanzo beans (do not drain) into a food processor and puree.  Add
cooked onion & garlic and puree.  Pour the whole collection into a sauce
pan and simmer.  Add salt, pepper, & sherry.  When flavors have melded,
ladle out a cupful of delicious comfort food.  This recipes can be doubled
and freezes well.  I am a weekend cook who makes potfuls of soup, portions
them into serving sizes and freezes them for lunches at work during the
week.  This is a hearty soup with a rich flavor and NO added fat.
