Tomato Garbanzo Soup with Rice
October 29, 2007

This was a pretty good soup. I used dry garbanzos so I quick-soaked them (boiled for a couple minutes and let sit a couple hours in the hot water). They were still not quite tender enough, but the soup's flavors were good. It needed more water than called for so I also added some vegetable base to give it more flavor (boullion "paste" I use from a jar). I also added celery. UPDATE: I discovered later that dried garbanzos require soaking time (overnight or the quick-soak method I mentioned above), plus up to an hour and a half of cooking time! In the soup they probably only got 30-45 minutes, so that explained their hardness. I'll save time next time by using canned, or plan ahead more!
