  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 quarts chickenless broth (I love this one)
  • 4 ounces baby spinach
  • 6 ounces noodles of choice, cooked
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • parsley, for garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a large stockpan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-6 minutes until soft. Add the garlic, carrots and celery and cook another 5-6 minutes, until slightly soft.
  2. Add the poultry seasoning, bay leaf, broth and bring to a low simmer. Cook for 15 minutes to let the flavor develop.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the noodles. Cook until al dente, then drain and rinse with cold water.
  4. Add the spinach leaves, cooked noodles, chickpeas to the soup and cook another 5-10 minutes until warm and the spinach has wilted. Season to taste, adding more salt/freshly ground pepper as needed.
  5. Serve, garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
